2022 Discarded tree, concrete, plastic
43cm (H) x 43cm (W) x 8cm (D) / 17" (H) x 17" (W) x 3" (D)
My works are mainly made from discarded wood and concrete.
The wood is a symbol of nature and the concrete is a symbol of artificial objects.
Humans destroy and manage nature to make their lives more comfortable, myself included.
Like food wrapped in plastic wrap.
This work represents the domination of nature by humans. And there is a small space between the wood and the concrete.
This is a message that "there must be a certain distance between nature and humans. It is a kind of social distance.
Humans should pay more attention to nature.
Confined in the plastic are the roots of discarded plants. I gathered many of them and confined them into one. It symbolizes human's appreciation of nature's bounty. On a global scale, when humans build houses, they cut down and gather many trees from all over the world. Just like ants gathering leaves.
