• Form

    I Like Your Form by artist Lonnie Hutchinson responds to FESTA’s invitation to intervene in The Arcades Project, temporarily transforming this landmark work of transitional architecture. The work, a giant hinaki or eel trap 50 metres long, shifts and expands not only the Arcades but the entire site. It brings to the forefront traditions, uses and cultural significance that might otherwise be overlooked in the hectic daily construction and repair activity that now marks the central city.
