Tom Moran, GFS's chief curator, selected the works in the exhibition materials and said, "when I felt the power of Masaki's work during my visit to China, I know we have to take it to the sculpture site for everyone to experience.

Ten pieces of work with lighter weight, concept and lighter material are shown in the mezzanine.
There, a sphere similar to the design is displayed together. They are "Ball-Black" (marble), "Ball-Transparent" (cast acrylic), and "Ball-Reflection" (
