Garden I, 2019
Incense ash, driftwood and stones on floor
“If death occurs only once, we have no chance to recognize it. Fortunately, life is a dance of life and death, impermanent rhythm.” From The Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche
Ephemeral Garden is an interactive installation. It is made of collected driftwoods, stones, and dried pine tree branches. The floor is decorated with ripples that are drawn with ashes and powder. Viewers are invited to wander in the garden; their footsteps will destroy the drawings on the floor, and ashes will be taken away.
