Artist Statement:


    Research into “stone” as a metaphoric representation of nature’s influences on human development in art and the urban environment, and how these factors engage with technology today. Movement, change, light, growth energies, materials, the textures and sound of natural elements – these natural elements bring great changes to human art development and process. By encouraging people to study these basic principles and the concepts behind them, we will be able to apply them to our future designs. The aim of this installation is to let users experience the processes of development in human art, natural environments, and sounds through the technology of today.
