Graph 2a: Empty space is an existing space which refers to the reference. (Mac Cumhaill argues in her contribution Specular Space, that the “empty space” of the depicted object is not physical empty space but is rather a mental “empty space” of specular experience through superficial phenomenon, which is able to be explained today through cognitive neuroscience and cognitive psychology scientifically. My artistic position is the same as Cage’s artistic position in this context, that he was always as an artist, not from and not towards technology, even if his idea was in the context of art and science. Thereby, I artistically explore the ethics of science in our lives.)
Graph 2b: What do I see from this object?
Graph 2c: A starting point of 3D draft (The limitations of sound expression are the range of audible sound and their transmission of how we humans can feel them.)

Graph 4a: A starting point of multi-open score for a layers; A drawing of topological space and time to transform from biological to musical.

Graph 5: Sketches from the score Ephemeris/Ekleipsis with the Set-up (two adjacent rooms at AdK Berlin) of 16 loudspeakers (Valerio Sannicandro)
(It refers to “Listening to Instruments.” Instruments for New Music: Sound, Technology, and Modernism, by Thomas Patteson in the theoretical exploration.)
