Award Reason

A very sophisticated device. Moreover, a strange world of the image which is realized when one looks into the device. The world is a memory of the artist himself. And what surprises one is that the artist presents an image of the whole celestial globe with a world which does not exist. Also, the balance between interaction and the massive device is superb. By improving the quality of the presentation of image, it will transform itself into further sophisticated work. This work makes one feel great expectations for the future possibility of this young artist who is still in his 20s.
