The mysterious way of how light travel through transparencies. The density of the glass and the coating of the glass eventually change the behavior of the photon from the light when it passes through it. As the result, we perceive the glass as a incidental wounder when gazed upon it from different time and different perspective. We often celebrate this moment when an almost camouflaged urban dressed glazing building appear in front of one's visual perception. No matter how many times the computer simulation can predict the glass of the building through its advanced technological renditions before actual installation, the reality still grapples my attention each time I look at it.
