Our installation has been variously described as a “Time slip” or  “Grandma work”; in our eyes both descriptions are correct. We have created a work that has welded two different eras together. An installation has been produced that draws attention to the lifecycle of an object within our consumer culture. This has been achieved through the utilisation of traditional Japanese packaging techniques to parcel up individual pieces of a dissected automobile.

Like a giant mammal that has been hunted down and shared out within the tribe our Honda Today lies chopped and bundled up on the floor of the Yorii-zain Kamiyama: pointing towards the obsolescence of the automobile and a possible hunter gatherer future trajectory for humanity.
