I associated the polyester stuffing on top of the glass panel with a piece of a floating cloud. A filler, inner material of a daily object, pillow, which provides its primary function; softness, was taken out of its cover. A yellow cleaning cloth made of ceramics is hung at an unreachable height.

Encountering outside of its designated position allows them to reverberate beyond their expected notions. I am fascinated with investigating how non-function can amplify the imaginations by focusing on the visceral materials of the functioning objects, and displacing them from their original context.
