About the artist:
Tomomi Homma (本間智美) is an architect, artist and producer from the city of Onomichi in Hiroshima Prefecture. In her work, the phenomenon of memory, the conceptual design of public space and the application of academic methods are harmoniously combined with each other in order to change society’s attitude towards the environment. An important motif in the artist’s projects are elements of traditional Japanese culture, which she integrates into her work using an instinctive process that highlights the importance of local residents and communities in the environment. Such spatial-anthropological relations between the (architectural) environment and the community are considered by Tomomi Homma as a four-dimensional space.
