A55 Forest of Love

Category: Installation

Artist: Ching-Ti Chen

The feature of this work is that all materials are recycled objects. The lush grass and flowers at the bottom are made with green and indigo nylon strings found on the beach whereas the flowers in two colors are a reuse of nylon nets used for packaging potatoes and sweet potatoes. In addition, the work also makes use of disposed umbrella. The umbrella fabric has two different colors on both sides. The slowly declining slope is in silver-gray while the towering dragon spruce is in dark blue. A few smaller trees at the back are actually grape stems. Finally, the blooming fruit trees are stalks of persimmons and soy milk bottle caps. If you feel like trying this interesting art, you could simply find some disposables and do it yourself.
