Hermit crabs carry their homes on their back in the form of an empty seashell that they scoop up and use both as shelter and as protection from predators.Inomata’s bespoke shells are crowned with tiny buildings and miniature cities. Delicately rendered in transparent plastic, they’re designed primarily as aesthetic statements, which Inomata ties back to concepts of identity, adaptation, and place.
