As I started bird watching with my child, I realized the beauty of the tense feeling when the bird starts flapping its wings. I tried to express the wind and tension when the bird starts flapping using my original takaori line construction method.
By making the angle of the ridge lines shallow, lines appear when light shines on it, and disappears when there is no light. I wanted people to enjoy how the appearance of this piece changes when moved or seen from different angles.
