<4-dimensional space-time transfer of existence>
The work represents the existence of human beings inside of the universe.
In this work, I utilize cosmic ray falling from space, and the data of the cosmic ray detector that the cosmic rays encountered my hand (existence), and make it into animation/ 3D hologram work. Also, the track of cosmic rays in this animation is the actual figure of cosmic rays that I shot in the cloud chamber at the National Museum of Nature and Science, Japan. When I recorded the cosmic ray I put my hand on the detector with slightly sliding my hand by 1 mins as a performing work.
The data of detector represents the exact location and time and how many particles encountering the object (my hand). Then, exchanged the data into 3D hologram and animation. looks like gradually appears the hand existence.
Installing the hologram (data) in another space-time axis means the transfer of existence (the data of the detector) in space-time.
In this work, I consult with Imperial College London / Dr. Simon Foster and negotiated to borrowed and utilized the cosmic ray detector machine, the technology based on the CERN. 

<Ghost of particles>
The medium of work is a 3D hologram called “Pepper Ghost”. In this work, I represent the existence on the social media platform that exists between the metaphysical world and the actual world, especially focus on anonymous identity and the dead people's account by adopting the keyword "Ghost". "Ghost" embraces the proof of memory that a person lived. Some of the cosmic rays could be the fragments of “dead” stars generated by the explosion of supernova and other stars outside of the solar system a long time ago. Therefore, those cosmic rays’ data could be described as "Ghost of particles".
