Trees are an important part of the forest, and they are able to transmit messages to each other through underground fungi. The decay of the tree releases the accumulated energy in the body, and then backs to the soil through a complicated decomposition process, which is then absorbed by other plants, allowing the energy to return to the forest. Endlessly looping.

This work is inspired by fallen wood in the forest and many rotten wood. Rotten wood plays an important part in the ecology, is the food source and habitat of many organisms, and also provides nutrients for a variety of fungi. It is a small ecosystem by itself. I collected the rotten wood in the forest as a material for my work, and stack it on top of each other to extend the fallen trees became a natural habitat in the forest. Try to gather many small ecosystems together and became a habitat for diverse creatures and guard the forest together.

樹是森林組成重要的部分,它們能夠透過地下的菌根彼此傳遞訊息。而樹的腐朽則釋放了體內蓄積的能量,再透過複雜的分解過程後回到土讓,供其它植物吸收之後,讓能量重回森林,如此無盡地循環。

此作品靈感來自於森林裡的倒木與許多的朽木。朽木在生態上扮演著重要的一環,是許多生物的食物來源與棲地,也提供多種菌類養分的供給,本身即是ㄧ個小型的生態系。我收集著森林裡的朽木做為作品材料,以相互堆疊的方式,將倒的樹木延伸成為一處森林裡的棲所,讓許多小型生態系集合成多樣生物的棲地,一起守護著這片森林。
