I try to change the atmosphere of a room. If the audience enters, a fairy tale world appears in front of them.

It is a bright guest room in an old castle. This octagonal room is about 25 square meters with a curved ceiling and three large windows. In the room there are a sloping bed and a wobbly night table with a glass; a table lamp stands on the ground and a chair tilts on the wall. The floor is bumpy with some little hills. Everything is covered with white Chinese rice paper. I lie on the bed covered with rice paper and I am dreaming. It looks like all the things of my dream have arrived the room.
