13 objects of various materials and forms, made through different techniques, hang suspended in the air. Each one is illuminated by light with a unique color from a particular direction, and the audience can view the work from the corridor.
Meaning is measured through space. Light and objects, the invisible forces such as their shadows and gravitational force, the act of viewing them — the direction and meaning of all of these are loosely connected to each other, while inducing an unrelated shift in the quality of the space. <D.W>

13の様々な素材と形状、技法によるオブジェクトが空中に浮かんでいる。 それぞれに固有の色と方向を持った照明がされ、鑑賞者は周囲の回廊から鑑賞する。空間によって意味を測量する。光とオブジェクト、その影と引力などの目に見えない力、鑑賞する行為、それらの方向性や意味がゆるやかに繋がり、あるいは無関係に、空間の質を変化させる。
