Nook is an exercise in defining a small, interior and hidden space, enveloped and protected by its surroundings. Light filters through the translucent washi paper into this interior space, but it is difficult to see inside. You will need to find an edge, a moment where movement between the exterior and interior is possible. You will need to move your eyes closer: you may need to move your body closer.
Nook has evolved from research into gestational spaces, spaces that are often hidden but are sites of dramatic activity and growth.
