LEVEL 9¾ – PART 2 – AIR

Everyone needs to breathe. Air floats between the water and the sunlight, so we can breathe freely. It acts as a buffer zone that wraps and protects everything on earth, providing us with a safe and warm umbrella, just like the small solitary space we have always lived in. when we feel insecure, we can close the windows and hide in our little world. However, if we need to breathe new air, we can open the windows to the balcony and interact with the natural world outside. Therefore, I chose “air” as the element and theme of this level to express my reflection on the living alone experience and in response to the site issue I identified in the site analysis chapter.
