Exhibition room is devided into three spaces;

Beside the entrance, ascreen with cut outs evokes basic concept of the series of lamps, to recreate the feeling of walking in a forest with low light coming through the trees.

Hanging installation of Pachika paper shows effect of this paper and techunique, as well as playing with light and shadow of layers of paper.

Dark room behind the wall shows effect of Phosphorescent twigs, which glows after the lamp is switched off, then you take a twig with you to walk in darkness to bed room.
