Living in the fluctuation

First of all, there is a big flame of 3x3 parallel crosses. The frame of space is made from the grid swinging gently perpendicularly. The intonation of a place is produced by being connected and separated. A certain part serves as a place of a spread of living and a dining room, and in somewhere else, the place of the end which was surrounded by the wall and settled down is produced. A place to stay seems to spring out with nature in a fluctuation of a big flame.
