A lamp is looking at a tree

I “dismembered” each section of a tree branch and laid it flat on a table, constructing a dissection table in a dark room. In the room, a lamp of my height shines on this “brutal” table, metaphorically representing the anthropocentric perspective I am in.

The reason why humans can avoid discussing the harm they do to nature is because the consequences of these injuries often occur indirectly. In this work, I directly display the process of harming nature.

我“肢解”了一棵树的每一段树枝,将其平铺在台面上,在黑色房间里搭建了一个解剖台。在房间内,使用与我等高的落地灯照射这一“残酷”的台面,隐喻我所处的人类中心的视角。

人对于伤害自然的事情可以避而不谈,是因为这些伤害的后果常常间接发生,在这件作品中,我将伤害自然的这一过程直接展示。
