Heidi Axelsen, Hugo Moline and Nathan Hawkes, all artists from the Sydney area, are the participating artists in the Australia House Artist in Residence Program 2013-2015. They return to Urada in the Niigata Prefecture five times under-going a process of absorbing the knowledge and practices of the satoyama way of life through "wordless-dialogue", before employing this understanding to inform the creation of a number of "delicate structures…familiar yet strange…crafted from local materials, using local techniques, but in new ways".
