An employee looks in an astronomical telescope and counts with a tally counter in around place. He does a headstand wearing a green suit.

A series called (Re) interpretation is a creation of a fictitious occupation that deliberately interrupts and confuses general recognition of objects and behaviors. A video of the occupation is played in its working place as an exhibition space which is along with employment information created by viewers of this work. Multiple layers of interpretations urge viewers to arouse their imagination to several interpretations beyond basic grasp. This unreal and unproductive work reinvents itself as more interpretations continue to emerge.
