In this work, a spiral-shaped space was created in order to properly accommodate the shape of the materials and the surrounding light. Illumination from the night scenery entered the interior through tens of thousands of holes in the surface of the wall. As the night scenery provided point light sources, these points would twinkle when visitors walk through the interior, giving them the experience of walking as the starry sky followed them. The brightness of an urban environment typically makes it hard to see the stars in the sky. By reinterpreting the night scenery as a starry sky that has fallen down to earth, this work was an attempt to return these fallen stars on the ground back to the sky through the use of darkness.

材料の形状と、周囲の光を適切に取り入れるため、螺旋状の空間が作られた。壁面の数万の穴から夜景の光が内部へと差し込む。夜景の明かりは点光源であるため、内部を歩くと光点が瞬き、星空を引き連れて歩くかのような体験が出来る。都市部ではその明るさにより空の星が見えにくくなっている。夜景を地上に降ろされた星空と読み変え、暗闇によって地上に降ろされた星を、再び空へと還す試み。
