場所 JR TOWER the first floor east concourse


(writer comment)
This product assumed simple concept that tied glimmering of all things in nature to practical description that ice which varied in scale at first melted. However, sequence of ice which melted, and went was what or gave organic impression when we actually produced picture.
As a result, not flow that individual motifs face extinction linearly, we think that it is more vague and faced that it is mystery filled with fluctuations and feel depth in the finish of work more at first.
All things have unexpected accident with regularity. This world does not settle on one place, and, also, world fate would appreciate your feeling that it is not one.
