a single-flower vase in the void

In Chinese philosophy, a single-flower vase represents “a small universe”. With this thought and having space blanket as the material, a byproduct of space-project material invented by the NASA, I cut out objects such as sake-bottle-like vase, flower stand, and geometric shapes. The scene may be subjectively judged in two ways by viewers; one may see floating objects and the other may see falling objects. Also, these empty shapes illusionally symbolize presence of small universe. Additionally, a placement of silver origami spacecraft is to show harmonious contrast to the golden piece in color and concept.
