仕事着についての商店主へのインタビューから、さまざまな「言葉」を抽出する。「言葉」の正体を知らない子どもたちが「言葉」からイメージを膨らませ、古着を用いて「形」を作り出す。その「形」を商店主に届けて、着用してもらう。

Various words are picked out from interviews with shopkeepers about working clothes. Children are asked to imagine freely and create their own forms of these words using old clothes. The children are unaware that the words are based on working clothes. The forms are brought back to the sources of the words, the shopkeepers, who then put on the forms.
