Installation art space for Japanese dance. Ponds with lotus flowers are shrouded in a light mist in the early morning when in bloom. The mist as if visualizing the sacred fragrance of the lotus. A mist formed by particles that catch the light. "Lines" that fill the space become its particles. Delicate "lines" has a Japanese beauty, as if it softly absorbs light. A hazy, misty existence created by countless "lines". By designing the sparseness of the lines, it spreads a transparent gradation into the space. A space that to be enveloped in mist develops Japanese Dance.
