Statement:

Sunlight received in the pinhole.
In the jet-black darkness, a lit up world emerges.
What you think you see is no more than your perception of light.
The real shape is unknown. Does complete darkness even exist?
Light breeds vision, vision breeds beauty, and beauty breeds value.
We remain searching for some relative beauty.
Generational and individual subjectivity will forever continue to alter the sun’s value.
Does an absolute beauty even exist?
Does this beauty which human beings cannot attain
exist in those very spaces of complete darkness where light cannot reach?
In this space where subjectivity cannot exist, where light confirms the existence of darkness, there is a spectacular light just after the absolute beauty.
