About the artwork

After walking along a narrow path surrounded by grass on both sides, we come to a house covered with thousands of round mirrors. The house merges with its surroundings, making the border between reality and unreality unclear. Each mirror has a different shape, because the artist cut each one by hand. The mirrors reflect nature, and the image of nature flickers when the soft wind moves the mirrors. The conflict between contrasting concepts, such as reality and unreality, light and shadow, and stillness and motion, creates a new dimension. This work allows us to interact with materials and nature which vary continuously.
