This competition entry,  UKIYO,  seeks to collapse the relationship between a floating dream like realm and our world.  UKIYO is a space where long haul truck drivers and art enthusiasts can divorce themselves from their larger responsibilities and experience a sense of place.  The circular repetition of form  and void, piercing light and shadow, the tracked motion of the solar shield, and the star gazing apertures all help construct a break from the mundane and point of entry to a waking state of dreams.
