The audience can appreciate the exhibition freely and comfortably. Even if it is crowded, you can be ensured a quality visit.

The work Yi uses the spread-out dynamic of paper-cut as its design concept, triangles and Chinese totem as the basic element, and multi-link mechanism to achieve an easier inline control. In addition, the material fully shows the gentle but durable properties of plastic. It is also favored by the Lagoon International Enterprise Corporation, and selected as the benchmark team.
