理念 | Statement
Be it the moment seeds germinate, the moment petals fall, or the moment of birth and death, sounds follow. The wetland species have been faithfully fulfilling their roles as orchestral members of the cycle of life. Erythrina variegata, from the family Fabaceae, is featured in this artwork. Arranged in a coiling manner, the space created symbolizes the cycle of the legume’s life.
