In the past, people were closer to nature, and we could feel the peace of the field when we went out. We are able to feel the wind cross the grass and the fireflies fly in the air. Nowadays, most people live in cities which is far away from the countryside. City dwellers live at a fast pace and we are always in a hurry.

 

So, I hope to use technology to restore the scene of a field at night, so that viewer can recall the memory of walking in the field. I also hope that the viewers can slow down to feel the time while appreciating this work

 

As the viewer moves through the space, the grass swings faster as if the viewer is bringing a gust of wind. Fireflies fly in space, with the frequency of music.
