This work centered not on a normal exhibition space, but rather a staircase – a passageway that originally had no artworks in it. Live-action images of scattered buttons were projected so that they filled a wide staircase that recalled the interior of a Western-style building. As viewers passed through the installation, large, multicolored buttons attached themselves to their clothes like stickers. The “screen” in this work was to be found not just in the staircase, but also on the bodies of people who climbed up and down, creating a humorous landscape.
