Shirakawa’s creations are often classified into two exclusive lines––shaped work or social work. As mentioned before, however, even his works such as “Summer Light” cannot be sorted only as “shaped” or only as “abstract.” Perhaps what is requested from us, the viewer of his show Summer Light, is to immerse ourselves in the space where two lights intersect––one emitted from the work “Summer Light” and the other from what would most likely be classified as social work, “Light of Benten Shopping Street”––so we can discover how the two lines found within each work made by Shirakawa coexist.
