Match Seller's Syndrome is an installation of paper houses suspended from the ceiling. The houses are lit from within by 2 small video monitors which play endless loops of two figures dining together. 

The concept drives from the story of the Little Match Seller by Hans Christian Anderson. 

Tapping into the nostalgic walks home in the dark streets of Tokyo as a school girl, Nogami recreates the thin barrier wall between the stranger passer-by and the muted family sounds and lights filtering through the curtains on the windows.
