Info

Existence of Earth proceeds in cycles, ruled by change. Waves of destruction are followed by nature’s flourishment. Ecosystem in Finnland, rich in waters and forests, is based on a thin layer of acidic soil. Despite the impression of its longevity, it’s fragile and exposed to natural disasters such as drought or sterilisation of the soil. The desert garden, a new space created by framing well known natural surroundings, made of drift wood, tree trunks, stones, gravel, bones of small animals found on the roadsides, is intended for attention and meditation. Once created, the garden will undergo changes resulting from weather conditions, accidental migration of plants, erosion, decay, the nature will slowly regain its territory lost in favour of the garden.

The installation has been developed especially for the AIB 2018.
