Series No 2 . In my several recent trips to see my father in the hospital in Japan, the beauty of my homeland has bloomed back inside me. Buddhists believe in reincarnation, and they are reborn in lotus flowers. I saw my late father in the Moon and his life in the multiple layers of papers and texture. Traditionally, the moon and its silver light are symbols of grief. This is a esend-offf for my father's jorney after his life on the earth. The letter and red line are visual codes for ever-lasting love and relationship between us.
