This work is installed in a room where I lived for 2 years. When I decided to move out, although my contract for living in the room remained about a month long, owner of the space opened it to various visitors who consider to move in. I could not have my privacy at there. Since I encountered many strangers in there, I decided to change my room into exhibition space. Making into the open studio, I displayed facility check records and individual fees I was charged monthly on the wall as part of drawing. I assumed all visitors as audience entering a gallery and greeted them like as well.

Since the room is located right next-to a motel, I encountered a lot of weird situations. These experiences made me feel unsafe at night, and to overcome anxiety, I tried to light up the night. A drawing of sky was projectedinto shadow of light bulb and yellow color halogen light was lighting in front of it as a symbol of sunshine. The work can only be seen at night and,I exhibited it in the open studio after sunrise.
