Authorities are sometimes indestructible and sometimes fragile. I use glass to create a series of crown, I hope that through the transparent, shiny, and fragile features of the glass to reproduce the beauty and fragility of the powe. What kind of reaction will people bring with the glass crown? Is tension, joy, or fear of a beautiful moment easily fall off, or will it naturally play itself?
