Rolling Home Base Home
"Rolling Home Base Home” is a minimum structure of a home, for Immigration or for Refuge. It is constructed from circular metal tracks and a small wood house unit which is attached to a buggy car.
The work is created as both a monument and outdoors sculpture standing in front of the HB building, as well as an object for performance in which the artist rolls around Iwatsuki. It echos the symbol and nomadic identity of the HB project.
