The setting for this program is a world filled with abstract concepts, which we situate like layers in a stack.
The interlocking parts of the piled-up layers are generated in reality as architecture.
The program visualizes the thinking process in which meaning is born through the encounter of one word with another, as well as simulates the situation in which a "thing" is created in the moment that several definitions coincide with each other.

note: Layers are like the floors of a building.
Terms like "height" and "space" govern each "floor" and when "light" penetrates the layers to link common terms, these abstract terms materialize.
