수직의 줄무늬는 뷔렝의 시그니처 문양이며, 이 작품에도 흰색과 검은색으로 이루어진 띠무늬가 사용되었다. 특히 이 작품에는 거울이 부착된 면과 띠무늬가 측면에 들어간 삼각뿔 형태가 더해져 마치 만화경 속을 들여다보는 것과 같은 광경이 만들어진다. 전시장 천장, 바닥 등의 공간과 작품을 바라보는 관람객을 비추며 사선으로 경사진 거울이 만들어내는 요동하는 듯한 ‘상황’은 관람객의 움직임에 따라 각기 다른 풍경을 만들어낸다. 예상치 못한 광경이 만들어지는 작품 앞에서 관람객은 자연스레 발걸음을 움직이게 된다.

The representative art world of Buren is defined by a key element, the vertical stripe of 8.7cm, that alternates between white and colored. The artist considered stripe as the most neutral form of visual expression that embodies no meaning and believed that its mere presence can be seen as a work of art.

The intended role of stripes becomes predominant in his In-Situ works based on site-specific installations. Pursuing art practices outside the established institutions, Buren overcomes the formal limitation of stripes by setting buildings and their surrounding environments as the canvas. Based on inspirations from the space, Buren externalizes its physical and relational elements. Here, the natural elements such as light, air, and wind become crucial resources to bring his artworks into completion. The concept of “site” that overarches time and space holds significant meaning for the artist. The artist strongly claims that his works must form a complementary balance concerning space and believes that the active participation of the audience enables it.
