Tanegashima, an isolated island with a space center, stands as the largest rocket launch site in Japan. This artwork, resembling a giant planet, graces the wall of the Minami-Tane High School building, which closed its doors in 2010. The ring of light, simulating the Fresnel effect, intricately weaves with the weathered patterns on the concrete wall, giving rise to a novel cosmic landscape within the framework of a time-tested architecture.

2010年に廃校となった南種子高校の校舎壁に出現する、巨大な惑星を思わせる作品です。フレネル効果を再現した光のリングと、コンクリート壁の経年模様が緻密に重なり、時を経た建築に新たな宇宙の情景が広がっています。
