 This is one of my graduation works. The glass trees are my golden image of what I left behind in Japan. I literally left camellia trees at my home in Osaka and miss them. My neighbors always say that they enjoy the beautiful big flowers every spring, but I am never there to enjoy. It is the installation which expresses what I left behind in the process of my life. Behind these hanging glasses, you will see huge shadow of trees and I put hundreds of pieces of paper which tell what I miss in Japan. From distance, the shadow and letters on the papers merge into trees and leaves. I should have taken photos of it, but I was too tired, concentrating too much on entertaining people who helped me to install this piece. I hope that I can install this one again at graduation show this December.
