The city structure is all allocated to the area surrounded by the environment, landscape architecture, buildings, roads, parks, which are part under some frames. If starting from the context of this area In addition to being an art area in the white cube context. The location is located in the residential area in the heart of the city but hidden with the peace of this area. The main road from the shortcut route is connected from the economic line along the Bangkok transit system cut into the Wireless Road Which is Lumpini can be called the centre of the area. Whether it is a department store, housing, many galleries, including parks that are the basic components of the city structure in other words, the concentration of the structure of the economic area but when looking at the wide picture, In addition to finding many development areas. There is also a community area like the Bon Kai community, One important meaning that many people are mostly labour drives the economic area in this area. All living in the community which is consistent with life traveling to the centre of one area that has a livelihood area Like a society with a variety of people, different professions, different ideas which each artists Presenting their own space, reflecting the person who came to live in this location as well.

Wichuda Khuntijit, who metaphorically represents the condition of the area. One of the elements of the city structure by reflecting the individual who lives a simple life that does not need to stand out like anyone else but still be part of the Space of self-worth like The Little Hogweed with an understanding of identity and the limits of different areas such as living under the framework of society. And realize the ordinary that happens. Therefore, the work of the artist is not different from one of the conditions of living and adapting in various areas depending on the person.

Kanokwan Sutthang looks at a certain area. Through the unwanted plants, if we look at the spatial structure of cities that are often designed for satisfaction and utilization. The cement and brick floors are laid out so neatly that unwanted plants have to squeeze in. Follow the nooks and crannies to live. It becomes a novelty which may not be desired in urban areas.

Unwanted Plants often secretly grow and are inserted in the corner of the artist's home tree. There is grass that "moir" (the artist's cat) likes to eat. While picking the grass, the artist found many unwanted plants in strange shapes that had never been found before. There is an interest that makes it almost everywhere. From the private area to the city center Unwanted Plants still grow naturally. Even in the city center area depends on the decision of people to look at it. Make the artist think of one of Winnie Pooh's favorite quotes “Weeds are flowers, too Once you get to Know Them” The artist presented the Unwanted Plants through their small view rather than being a plant that people don’t want.

Another area structure that is communicated by Apichaya Wannakit, the dream is communicated instead. The truth and unreality of the dream state Causing communication through this structure by metaphorical questioning with a more specific situation.

Artist’s work presents an exploration of the relationship between the personal, secret world and the family sphere. Rooted in her upbringing in a village, Artist’s paintings reflect upon an idealized past and the realities of adulthood in the city. Through her enigmatic style, Wannakit invites viewers to delve into the depths of memory and subconscious, where mysteries and secrets of the past are still part of the present, inviting quiet introspection rather than immediate revelation.

Symbolism and metaphor adds layers of complexity to her work, reflecting on the enigmatic aspects of human existence. The truth lies not in straightforward answers but in the subtle nuances of interpretation, in an attempt to understand oneself and society. The works offer a glimpse into the artist‘s contemplative journey, where the past and present converge in a timeless exploration of existence.
