Uchimaru Hakuba a little home away from home in a wintery wonderland. Had opened its doors in 2016. Before it did PIMA was commissioned to make 9 pieces of art for some of its rooms.
Elements from the nature and surroundings of the Hakuba mountains were used to inspire each piece. Using different techniques of origami and paper crafting, each of these framed a specific characteristic from Japan and Hakuba. Expressions of different moods and feelings were also manifested through each frame.
I had a lot of fun with each of these pieces. There was a lot of discovery in regards to the capabilities and execution. There were some hurdles but all a revelation.
