This is one of his INTERMISSION series. INTERMISSION is an interval between parts of a film; two parts separated by another movie innovation. Qay Mihara hypothesis that to appreciate paintings is 'intermission' in the life of human being, which does not have any time or date restrictionn and that time can be instantaneous or forever. He believes that the viewer can interpret or give the role in both arbitrarity or societary way depending on a film that viewers are watching. 

As example, a film "The Birth of a Nation" directed by D.W. Griffith, which is known as one of the most complex and controversial film, starts off with two good families who were torn apart by the Civil War. After intermission, the second part of the film shows a heroic force of KKK (Ku Klux Klan) which saves "right white" from blacks and government officials. 

Relative of Justice depending on a situation, evil with no doubt of being absolute. Qay Mihara does believes that the essence haven't changed even now, and 'present' is the 'intermission of the first part (past) and the second part (future).
