Totan texture

Totan is wave-shaped sheet metal which is made of galvanised iron, and used mostly for low cost buildings or industrial purpose. Although it doesn't last long, many houses use it to cover the surface of their old wooden wall because it's cheap and easy to handle. And this becomes a part of landscape of rulal area in Japan.


And this picture below is an art work which is used different texture of Totan sheets, colored, coated and rusted. I feel nostalgy when I saw this in a modern architecture of the city.
