When we see such decayed, old things as will evoke our old memories, we often experience a sense of nostalgia and are apt to reminisce about the past.
People in the past may have had such a feeling, and indeed, the noblemen and noblewomen in Europe in 18th century are said to have had such a nostalgic feeling called “folly”. They are also said to have made architectural structures look old on purpose to indicate their nostalgic longings for the good old days.
Inspired by this episode, I made this work on the subject of the tool by which we can experience a sense of nostalgia in our daily lives.
We can enjoy sounds from a CD player inside it by remote control.
