The first space includes 3 square columns about 3m height, 45 – 50 cm width, from the ground up to the ceiling of the exhibition. Formed by the straight, solid, dashed bamboo sticks which inspires from the bird cage. In this cramped space there is a lot of birds with different posture and mood, are interlocked and overlapped.
Second space is created by the bamboo sticks connected with others, bending into curves as arcs, and continuously occupy the entire second room which is 80m2 of space. It is expressed as the orbit of the birds with the curve in a big space.
