[The Morphing Check]
This work is inspired by ISSEY MIYAKE's theme for the 2013 Autumn and Winter Season, "Hop, Step, Check." The rotating cube generates a myriad of checkered patterns with the lines on the front and back surfaces overlapping one another. Why not stop by for a look at a scene made of geometric patterns that come and go, constantly changing their shape.
