This was one of Chida’s works from his 2019 show held in Nagano. Inside the pitch-dark room, an extremely thin, sparsely netted fabric was suspended from the center part of the ceiling, so that the form resembled a mountain range. Linear laser-light slowly moved upward and downward along that form, while the light also created contour lines in midair. Curved lines in the soft light danced in the air as they continued to appear and disappear. (T. N.)
