A floor of the museum’s corridor is covered with whitish powder that gets slightly carried away by people walking over. It slowly crackles beneath one’s feet. In the space, the plain light bulbs hang very low, arranged in a row, swinging lightly, being casually moved by the visitors. A ghastly sphere-like object appears around the light bulb that is closest to the observer. As one lifts the bulb, the object grows; if we let it swing, this structure opens into a ball-like shape and then closes again. Walking away from it, the object slowly disappears, however not entirely; it seems to be alive.
A floor is covered with numerous tiny glass pearls. The light bulbs are suspended from the ceiling, freely hanging above it. The refraction of light from glass pearls creates the appearance of a three- dimensional, ghostlike spherical form floating around the light source. The form slowly opens up or closes, according to the position of the viewer.
