Snow Sculpture, Performance and film, 1 hour, 2011
We think of ourselves as a great being that makes something great with material from nature. And when we make something great, we are proud of ourselves as a creator. I am sick of this. So in this project I wanted to play with the position in the other way around that Nature is a creator and Human is a material.
I then have been lying on the ground in the heavy snow. As snow was covering me, I was getting more white. It was hard to be a good material by not moving at all. But finally I became a white sculpture in one hour.
When people makes a sculpture with natural material, the sculpture got artificial with our touch. In this case, I was getting natural with nature's touch.
