駐足與觀看 Place for Being and Seeing
Bamboo, Reeds, Wire
I try to create spaces where people can come into closer contact with the patterns, processes, and rhythms of nature. In the making of these spaces, I try to suggest pathways for people to begin to work more closely and collaboratively with the natural world. All this work is rooted in the ongoing efforts to develop an ecologically sustainable post-industrial culture.
