This work is an interactive work in which the shadow of the viewer is shown on the screen. They can watch images of animals running through only the parts of their body shapes. In other words, if there are no body in it there is nothing on the screen. In order to see more of animals' images, you have to move your body. The viewer intends to "dance" naturally in front of the screen. There is also an intention to see if we can reconsider the physical time we have by overlapping the human body and the animal's body.

A herd of animals is an aggregate formed to survive. At the same time, it is also an aggregate that is ready to pay some sacrifice. There are things to live and to die. Its shape is shaped at that moment separated from the past and the future. And in that form, life and death are mixed. Its shape is the body itself.
