I focus on weight and thickness. I opened holes of different sizes on them,and I found that some thick walls formed space inside,and thin walls formed space with the outside. Put these walls together, it could create surprises so you don't know if you are outside the walls or inside the walls. These openings of different thicknesses also affect the feeling of light, for example - open large holes on the thin walls, the light will be very direct, but on the thick walls, light will refract and scatter inside, and finally the light come out with very soft gloomy beam. I want to present concrete in a different way to reverve its original character.
