At an outdoor construction site, the construction area is surrounded by soft cloth imprinted with green leaves to reduce visual discomfort and conceal itself. The thin material does its best to divert the gaze, but the flow of air causes the cloth to flutter, creating betraying wrinkles that distort the image. I captured it with a fixed lens as it slowly swayed, offering it a gaze.

By adding a vent cover outside the display screen, the landscape is separated on the "outside". Stainless steel plates with angles not only define the viewing point to see the complete image but also reflect flickering green hues, adding a captivating allure to distant observation.
