Tree of Passage

2012

a project from Georgia Tech Campus Exhibition 2012

 

In contrast with Western culture, Koreans have always revered nature (as evidenced by their architectural principles) while the West was about making nature work for them. Inspired by the ‘Dangsan Tree’, sacred trees that are worshiped by villagers in Korean culture, this installation art symbolizes the connection in between nature and human by bypassing white elastic cords from the walls around the tree. The tree distorts the surface created by multiple layers of cords by blocking the path of them. The intention of this installation was to deliver a message that man-made objects interact with nature-made through times.
