concept of design :
The space between the number on count-up. That space is what we consider as time itself.
We creates that time of the space as an image into the three dimension world.
Eleven of “IKEBANAS” are created as three dimension object and arranged into the vast space.
The camera sequentially cathes those works like being thrown into the flow of time one by one.
