Three stones lie low on the ground in contrast to an erect figure of a single stone. The standing monolith features an iron plate on its top, pointing upward at the space far ahead. On the ground, iron prisms nonchalantly bridge three stones. The seemingly careless arrangement of stones and irons highlights the materials’ individual existence and their interactions at the same time. Formative concepts hitherto nonexistent in the realm of sculpture art – relevance of irrelevance, unrestrained space, temporary structure – or “installation” in other word, finally emerged. The atmosphere of Zen dominates the place.
