When entering the Central Academy of Fine Arts Museum, designed by Arata Isozaki, I felt absorbed by the luminous space and expansive lines he created in the lobby. Museums are not just for exhibitions; but they are places where we can produce new ideas to share with viewers. Therefore, I took this opportunity to unite areas of my creative process. These themes included my preference towards asymmetry and my search for infinite light. By doing so, I replicated what I felt in the lobby of the CAFA Museum. The Mirror Connection is a piece where we connect with ourselves, the space, and the artwork.
