The designer considers a dream is weightless and transparent. It can hardly be caught, and yet it is so realistic. He designs this installation as a way to visualize the metaphor of the surrealistic nature in a dream. Each curved member contributes to a part of a propagating dream. He places entire design setting on a transparent base with a light source projects upward to make it feel weightless like floating in the air.

It's rather an inspiration pursuit, in which is a simple mechanism of elements can be very interesting.
What made you design this particular type of work?
It's rather interesting. I have teaching architectural design for freshman for years. To deliver my concept and to inspire students, I would like to have this design as a demonstration of lighting installations.

An endless loop just likes a dream it never ends. This is where the name come from.

Very traditional one like hand-made. But to incorporate the metaphor of dream, a comprehensive research effort was made to find an appropriate form of industrial product for representation.

If these is any involvement of technology, it would be the mathematic concept applied to conduct the entire piece into an almost continuous loop.
Is your design influenced by data or analytical research in any way? What kind of research did you conduct for making this design?
"Möbius band" was influential and lead the configuration from parallel axis to an endless band.
What are some of the challenges you faced during the design/realization of your concept?
To conduct a paradigm shift with the development of concept and details would be most challenging.

It's a great opportunity to open up your eyes and to have a strong connection to professionals.
What did you learn or how did you improve yourself during the designing of this work?
I guess a simple modification is not feasible, a paradigm shift will do.
