In complete darkness. One light attached to an aluminum ring, 1.2 meters in diameter, hung from the ceiling is rotating slowly at the center of the space. Transparent nylon threads weaved whole space in the room reflect the light. You will be surrounded by several thousands of tiny light points moving up in the space like a natural phenomenon “Diamond dust”.

"I believe that space itself has beauty. However, space is not visible and touchable. Light is the purest material which can change space tangible. When density becomes limitlessly low and reached to the limit that people can feel some kind of existence, the material loses its materiality and remains only as quality and space. People feel as they were surrounded by thousands of light particles." (Yasuhiro Chida)

The rock cellars on the hillside of the Röderberg were built in 1844 and were used as a brewery until the Second World War, most recently by the Röderberg Brewery, about whose history little is known. The tunnel system of the brewery building extends far into the hill and is unknown to many Frankfurters. A location with history and industrial charm that is waiting to be discovered.
