The memory was described with clear balloon material. About 1,000 balloons were connected in a certain way to express a long cluster of memories.
This cluster surrounded visitors in the room, floating in the air and making a circular arc pattern. Moreover, it was heap up at the corner of room and rolled over underfoot.
Visitors could enjoy the beautiful room interior and the strange feeling of molecular cluster of memory, walking freely through balloons loop.
