The human race has lived with light since ancient times. Those escaped from the dark which was an object of fear harnessing light from natural environment such things as the fire, the sun, and the moon, and wished for a relief with brightness. Once in a while the mysterious shine became an absolute
symbol at such as a ritual.
We can easily take the light in modern days. Neon and streetlight at night give off light excessively. The darkness that has conflicted existence of the light and has showed it off to advantage which is vague, that makes the existence of light be an eyesore on occasion. Therefore I reconsider what the natural relation between people and light should be originally.
First, I take a word “touch”. This means so that people can feel a light familiar to them. Therefore I selected the sun and the moon of familiar natural environment as the motif.
