Harvesting Every 30 Years
Site-specific installation Harvesting Every 30 Years speaks to the developmental context of forestry around the area. The tittle indicates that growing trees is similar to growing vegetables; the only difference is that the former requires thirty years to harvest, which alludes to the idea of sustainable utilization of forest resources.
The work comprises six towering wooden modules that realize the concept of whole-tree utilization. The top and bottom frames are made of cedar wood, while all the vertical pieces are the leftover sapwood of the wood industry. When the modules join together, the segments of bark restore to a tree in its complete diameter as if being planted in rows, which reproduces the artificial forestry scenery.
