Excerpt from "lead Asia.

2003Works in "home" shows the face disappeared completely bizarre and inane representation. This is a vacant face, face disappeared, face hole.
Face without a word of it, are changing facial expressions and movements are not void.

When nothing stood out like the ghost was frustrated when I had to face the dream space removed face, is the owner of this face world any relationship with that? It's a face there is no hope of?
