« Depiction of Nature and Society » is a continuous project inspired by literature, or rather drawing on it to find the elements of its structure, its title and its relation to the world.
The title refers to "the world object" - super powerful artifact of the Japanese light novel "Overlord" written by Kugane Maruyama. "It was an object that could seal a target in an enclosed space. To be more precise, he permuted a landscape painted with the real world, then converted the real world into a painted landscape. This object refers to the Chinese legend: A man who has gone to live in a painting/image by choosing a different reality.
