Artwork Description:


  This is another piece that I explore the idea of “existence” and the idea of “float” in the context of time and place in an outdoor environment. The viewer can spin a tree by cranking the crank just by their hands. The viewer becomes part of the piece while playing with it. The silent movement in the transient passing time will only be meaningful for people who start the spinning action as physical experience from themselves.
