What is important is that in the future, can we change the world with a heart that loves nature instead of using nature. The world presented by the model is a future concept where the exhausted energy had changed things. The tool transforming the world by human is no longer sharp but with aesthetic sense that is visional and unpractical. However, it is our deep concern for life. The caves of those abandoned mines are dense, and it seems that every cave has connected to an unknown direction. The mountain was hollowed out by human bared layers of the rock. The fantastic color and various shape of caves undoubtedly create infinite imagination. A huge pit in spiral hovered over the underground. Rust-spotted mining machines are eroded by wind and sand in wild grassland. The scene will be removed from reality and become part of the work. The space of the abandoned mine is transformed into an open space of different dimensions, and the mutilated rock seems to be flimsy but maintains a delicate balance. The creatures which have never be seen before slowly extend beyond the bottom of the pit from the passage, crawling through interconnected caves, and mysterious weird creatures fly out of the tunnel. Above the huge pit there is a huge layer of glass where people can stand on top and look down on everything.
