Models, Reel 2 (B-1~4) consists of four works and is dealt with, different from Reel 1, symbol/words, and the logic in film. First "Counting 1 to 100 or X" is made of four 100feet films and the number of 1 to 100 are replaced by multiplied (10, 20,40,80) Xs, which may be "read" as numbers through repeated perception. "Seeing, not Seeing" is dealt with the relation of light and darkness to the words. At first "Seeing" is followed by light and "Not Seeing" by darkness using clear and black leaders respectively and second time it is re versed as "Seeing" by darkness and "Not Seeing" by light with certain duration every time. Next "To See the Frame, Not To See The Frame" shows the reversed relation of the frame between film (as the material) and screen (as the space). At first in "To See the Frame", the visible black frame of film is in visible on screen while the invisible clear frame of film is visible on screen.
