At the space which countless drawings are hanging and swinging in the minute air moves,Our visitors sat in a moon chair and spent some time as in a cradle to fully experience the world of “Ku u so u” (imagination) in order to forget their busy daily life for a while and to gaze blankly at my drawings.
When I sat and swung on moon chair surrounded by baroque buildings, fountain and sky at Přemysla Otakara II Square, I felt strange like in the world of fairytale. Meanwhile, children gathered around me in curiosity. Moon chair has many ways to enjoy in accordance with environment.
