Shoko Konishi is an art school graduate who created this inviting paper sculpture that lets visitors experience it spatially. The art installation is titled 'Transition' and is inspired by star gazing and astronomy.

The cylindrical paper sculpture resembles a pod with a small door at first glance. Once inside, visitors will look up to find a gorgeous ceiling that is meant to evoke the beauty of our vast universe.

The botanically shaped ceiling boasts countless cut-outs of paper that are joined together seamlessly. These elements reveal natural light from the sky above and create a sensory experience for anyone who is looking through them. 'Transition' surprises art lovers and gives them an experience they wouldn't necessarily expect from its seemingly plain exterior.
