■HOLA
_________________________________________________
This is not a clock, this is like a clock.
"to meet the goddess of time"
Time was once of the blessing the heavens
bestowed on people.
I wonder if it is impossible for us to look up to the
heavens again and recover the heavens' blessing.
Let's watch the heavenly bodies' movements and
become free from the concept of time.
If we watch the heavenly bodies' movements,
and the light and shade caused by them,
we will be reminded that we are living on earth,
and an element of space.
When we realize time is also an element of
space, a clock which has been only a meter of
time will become something related to space,
or an apostle of HOLA.
When we can understand our ancestor's belief
in HOLA and see HOLA's dimple.
