Bamboo, fibre wood, stone, paint, and lantern.


This installation is comprised of majorly four parts. At the center erects a black column, whose surface is painted in black. The black column is convolved by some braided ropes, signaling the interdependence of natural beings. Placed around the column are four egg-shaped Wisteria, with red lights installed inside. Surrounds the Wisterias are two speakers playing human voice. Around the column and its attachments, three groups of bamboos are arrayed orderly and directed to the central column. Each group of bamboos consists 12 of them, of which are painted in green and have a red light installed in their hollowed inner to highlights its mysteriousness.
