Highlight of Decline (2013)

Decline

 

Resistance

 

As a mere object

 

I think about phenomena of "decay" and "death" of natural objects including humans.

 

They seem cruel, but considering their real meaning, I feel they're beautiful natural phenomena.

 

Rotten fruits, aged skin, crumbling buildings.

 

They're the essential phenomena to keep the earth. Just like the sun sets and rises again, next generations are created by

accepting them.

 

This work expresses mankind's greatest contradiction between the desire for eternity in human hearts and the reality that

impermanent materials created by humans bring death to ourselves.
