“Layer” means accumulation, strata.
Points gather and become a line. Lines weave and become a surface. Space is born when surfaces overlap. Points form space, while points themselves are also spatial. Lines of intention are woven into a fabric, and fabrics are combined to make clothing, and people wearing clothes build buildings and roads and establish culture. Cities are made.
If humans can be seen as threads, what color would these threads take on as they struggle to endure various scenes and moments of sadness and joy? These threads of different color, size, and material are woven into a fabric that shines in millions of colors as it envelops the entire earth. One cannot wear at the same time what the other has on. The threads of the self and the other, deeply in love though they may be, cannot become one. They cannot inhabit a same story. But, like weaving a fabric, they can still come in contact with each other. People live among other people. And every person that is merely a “piece” continues to found cities of immense proportions.
