No Hard Feelings is Justine Wong's love letter to Japan's seaside. Inspired by her time along the coasts of Japan, the work softly speaks in the language of the sea and comes into form with the land. Each landscape unfolds with the transitional conversations between the two elements, balancing and breaking onto each other to create safe spaces to house all that we feel.
