When people stand near the characters, the worlds that the characters embody will appear, influencing one another to create a single world.


The elements that are born from the characters are placed at various positions within the space, and the physical influences and connections between them produce a single world. For example, when the wind blows, flowers and snow are physically fly away. Birds alight in trees, and butterflies are attracted to flowers. Just as in nature, what you see at this moment can never be seen again.


Chinese characters were first carved in turtle shells and ox or deer bones, and were engraved in bronzeware. Each character contained its own world that was conjured up by its meaning. Through the characters, the world that people call up connects and interacts with others to create a new continuously changing world.
