Sketch #1 for "cracker drawing"

When I was looking at the scenery from balcony, I felt that everywhere to a faraway billboard is filled with something. If everywhere is packed with invisible substance called the air, when I push my hand forward here, might the space slant in the further back?

Sketch #2 for "cracker drawing"

What I recalled when I was making my work - a long time ago, at the festival, I played with a lots which has many strings. When I pulled one string, a gift was pulled out from a box at random.

Cracker Drawing  Medium: party crackers, silken gut(for fishing line) 

Invisible silken gut is roped off infinitely in space. A cracker is installed on a wall toward the space. When it was set off, tapes spring out and get entangled with the silken gut, remaining their shapes after the explosion completely in the space.
