Inside Story

winter_memories_resize We can enjoy snow only on winter, very short term of a year.
If the temperature rise, snow melt and joyful memories remains only in our mind.
“can I preserve this snow somehow?”
I want to make snow remember the memories as its form.

At first, I tried to use sugar for this project.
It fitted to express lightly powdered snow situations, but it was difficult to make accumulated snow.
It was something different.
One day, I cooked in my small kitchen.
when I took a bottle of salt to boil pasta for my lunch, the salt grains joined each other by moisture in the bottle.
I felt this state was very similar to the character of snow, I chose it.
