Hidemi Nishida is a Sapporo-based artist, designer. Through my all projects, I’m trying to make a place that could be makes an attentions to the surroundings. And also trying to extract a joyful happenings from the place. So my projects completed with gathering finally. I think it should have an function as a house but it shouldn’t be exactly house. I think it should be something like temporary shelter.
This winter temporary shelter leads people to gather, having a party, stay, feel the connection to the woods and so on in the white woods. This fragile function as being a shelter in the wild nature makes you a bit restless to satay there alone, but when few number of people get to gather into there, it’s get be wonderfully cozy, empathetic space. This is a reconfirmation of beginning of the “house”. And I want to make a primitive enjoyment to live.
