02 STACK AND BIND

elements の第2回目のテーマは「積む / 束ねる」です。
工業化以前、優れた道具や技術がなかった時代、そこにあるものを積み、束ねるという単純な行為で様々なモノは成り立っていました。石や日干し煉瓦を積み重ねたものが住居の壁になり、麦わらを束ねたものは屋根になりベッドになりました。それらは人間が獲得した初歩的な知恵ですが、現在では技術の進歩と共に登場の機会が減っています。
elements02 では、「積む / 束ねる」を、人間がものづくりをする際の入門的な行為と捉え、改めてそこに立ち帰ることで、逆説的な発見や新たな視野を得れないかを探求してみます。

As our second phase, “elements” will explore ideas based on STACK AND BIND.
In pre-industrial times, when advanced tools and technology were still non-existent, people made things by the simple act of stacking and binding things around them.
Rocks and sun-dried bricks were simply stacked to create walls for their homes, and hay was bundled to make roofs over their heads and beds for resting.
As a basic wisdom of which human beings have attained, we have fewer opportunities to witness it in our times, with the advancement in technology.
So with elements 02, we will look into the idea of STACK AND BIND as a basic way of creating things, by taking us back to that stage in human behavior, and as a result, making paradoxical discoveries and finding new horizons.
