古着が三つのステージを循環しながら、解体と構築を繰り返す。第一ステージの《オーバーオール》では、世界各地の巨大な喪失物を、市民から集めた古着を解体し、市民が協働してパッチワークで再建する。形見としての服が故人の存在感を強く示すことがあるのとは逆の順序で、モチーフの記憶に新たな装いを与えてゆく。制作過程では、町の成り立ちの再考と市民相互の対話が促され、町に新たな景観を生み出す体験を共有する。第二ステージの《人間の家[家]》では、各地の巨大なパッチワークが一カ所に集められ、再び解体され、さらに精巧なパッチワークへと合体する。このパッチワークから、大勢の人が中に入って集える大きな服としての家が構築され、市民が集い語らう場となる。第三ステージの《ピープルズ・ハウス〈人間の家[服]〉》では、《人間の家[家]》は再び解体され、小さな家としての服へと作り替えられ る。そして日常着として各地の市民に還元される。

A mass of old clothes circulate around 3 stages, fluctuating between disassemble and re-assemble. In the first stage titled Overall, local citizens cooperate to reconstruct a giant lost object with patchworks created from old clothes collected in the specific area around the world. Memories of the motif are revived by the Overall, just as the clothes of the departed remind you of them. This project promotes reconsideration of the origins of their own hometown, dialogue among citizens, and opportunities to share the experience of creating a new landscape in the town. In the second stage titled People’s House [House], the works of Overall are collected at a specific place from the world over, then disassembled and united into a more elaborate patchwork. The patchwork is made up into a huge size of clothes to make a house into which a lot of people gather and talk with each other. In the final stage titled People’s House [Clothes], the house is also disassembled into every piece of clothe regarded as a small house. Then the clothes are returned, as everyday wear, to each hand of citizens among many parts of the world.
