<4-dimensional space-time transfer of existence>
The work utilizes cosmic ray falling from the universe. The main aim of work is to represent the existence of human beings inside of the universe based on philosophy and physics. By installing the hologram (data) at several venues/exhibitions, the past existence data become existing in a different space-time axis from the original space-time. As a result, artwork represents the transfer of existence in 4-dimensional space-time.

Firstly, I consulted with Dr. Foster (Imperial College London) and borrowed the cosmic ray detector for education, MX-10, and recorded the data which cosmic rays encountered my hand (existence). The recorded data by the detector represents the exact location, time and how many particles encountering the object (my hand). Then, those data were exchanged into animation and 3D hologram installation. Furthermore, when I recorded the cosmic ray data, I put my hand on the detector with slightly sliding by 1 min as a performing work. Therefore, it makes the hand (existence) appears gradually as if the hand has transformed from different space-time axis. Additionally, 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.

<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".​​​​​​​
