In this work, exhibited at the Azumino Municipal Museum of Modern Art, Toyoshina, several hundred small mirror fragments were carefully arranged on the floor. The aluminum, ring-shaped object that was horizontally suspended from the ceiling had a small fan attached to it, so that the fan’s breeze could quietly make the ring object revolve. The mirror fragments on the floor reflected the LED light that was attached to the object, which projected the fragments of light that seemed to y about inside the exhibition space. Each and every single mirror fragment was placed at an accurate angle on the floor in order for the reflections of the lights to gather in one corner during the time it took for the ring to make one revolution. e light fragments that slowly gathered in the corner gained speed and then dispersed as they shifted to the next wall.

数百の小さな鏡の破片が床に並べられている。天井から吊るされたリングには小さなファンが付けられ、風の力によって水平方向に静かに回転する。リングに取り付けられた一灯のLEDの光を床の鏡が反射し、展示空間に光の破片が飛び散るような映像が映し出される。リングが1回転する間に一度、壁面の角に反射光が集まるように、一つ一つの鏡は厳密な角度で設置されている。角で壁面が切り替わるため、光の破片は、角にゆっくりと集まり、加速して散らばっていく。
