A forest of houses, a corridor of trees
Emi Kodama (Interne 14) focuses on layering the everyday with memories and daydreams to create stories that can be explored and expanded. A forest of houses, a corridor of trees asks you to hold a walnut, feel its weight and listen to the sound it makes. As the story helps the nut transform in your imagination, the tangible object grounds you. The walnut in your hand is connected to the one in your imagination, creating a bridge between the outer and the inner world. By exploring the way an object adds dimension to a story, Kodama is working towards a guidebook to imaginary landscapes.
