Focusing

I created a device using a magnifying glass to burn trees, placing it next to a tree in the park. It only takes 2 seconds for the tree to be scorched.

I want to directly demonstrate the desire to destroy and control nature. Another aspect of this work is about the shift of focus (a pun on “focusing”). In this piece, are people more inclined to pay attention to the act of harm? And ignore that the act of harm is “constructed” on another dead tree (wooden pole).

我使用放大镜制作了一个烧毁树木的装置,将其立在公园的树木旁边,只需2秒,树木就会被灼伤。

我想直接展示毁灭和控制自然的欲望。这件作品的另一方面是关于聚焦点(focusing的双关语)的转移,在这件作品中人们是否更倾向于关注伤害的行为?而忽略了伤害的行为是“建构”在另一棵死去的树木(木杆)上的。
