Comment

' Society reflected in Space, Space that translates society ' Carry out more in-depth conduct into the aesthetic superiority of Japanese particular point of traditional architecture and its approach to space into a contemporary space. I have been questioning about how imperfect we are to believe in 'Seeing is Believing' through light. The light is being expressed in a space by using a conventional code, 'The sublimity'. Besides, the work meets our fundamental awareness of man and society in that it signifies the original deficiency and loss of the subject in a vague, dim space. Thus, it enables our insights into society and human beings amid an absence of concrete objects, crossing any context.
