Memory of the Forest 森林的記憶

I heard the animals in the forest are slowly disappearing. In the name of progress and development, deforestation took place in the jungle and the original habitats of the animals were destroyed in an unprecedented scale. The animals in the forest cannot adapt to the drastic change of the environment and heading towards extinction. The trees that once provide shelter for the animals got transformed into industrial product, then further turned into garbage and buried at the landfill in a very short time. Inside the memory of the animals that once lived in the forest, they would remember us as Destruction, Disappearance, and Death. These sculptures are made by recycled wooden crates, it encourage the viewer to sit inside and to look at our world from the animal’s perspective.


聽說,森林裏的住客正在慢慢消失,人類以發展之名不斷大量砍伐樹木以至動物原有的生態環境遭受前所未有的破壞,森林裏的動物因生活環境突變,無法適應而步向滅亡。曾經是動物安樂窩的森林變成了工業產品,再變成了填海區的垃圾只是一瞬之間。破壞、消失、死亡就是曾經在森林裏居住過的動物,對人類的記憶。這些雕塑是由回收的木板改造而成,觀眾可以走進雕塑裹面去,由動物的眼睛看看世界去反思人類對自然的被壞。
