KIKK in townWhy Not Hand Over a "Shelter" to Hermit Crabs?
Japanese artist Aki Inomata draws a parallel between the behaviour of hermit crabs that change their shells when they get too big or are simply chased away by another species, and that of humans and their migratory movements.
The artist started with shells used by hermit crabs, which she scanned to reproduce an exact copy with the addition of urban landscapes, all 3D printed.
For both Aki Inomata and Thomas Thwaites, their work is an exploration and displacement of our perception of others and ourselves by observing the living.
