Inspired by Francesca Pasquali, “Red Straws” (2015), this installation is a transposition of my previous 2D charcoal landscape into a 3D assemblage of daily industrial materials to demonstrate deforestation. To start off, I was fascinated about relief sculpture, so I carved a piece of Styrofoam into seven layers based on a photograph I took in New Zealand. Then I glued materials, such as nails, zippers, and gears, on the Styrofoam to represent different industries that replaced the forests. During experiments, I accidentally found out Styrofoam melts when spraying on it, so I took use of the specialty and create various textures. With silver spray paint, I achieve a monochromatic work, whereas it reflects its environment and make the audience part of itself. In addition, the work has a wooden frame which play as a sarcasm to the reciprocal relationship it has with the landscape. In conclusion, the installation serves as a symbol of deforestation and delivers an alarming message. 

这个装置作品的灵感来自于Francesca Pasquali的“红色稻草”(2015),它将我之前的2D木炭景观转换成3D的日常工业材料组合,以展示森林砍伐。一开始,我对浮雕很着迷,所以我根据我在新西兰拍的一张照片,把一块聚苯乙烯泡沫塑料雕刻成七层。然后我把钉子、拉链和齿轮等材料粘在聚苯乙烯上,代表不同的行业取代了森林。在实验过程中,我偶然发现喷在上面的聚苯乙烯是可以融化的,所以我利用了这个特长,创造了各种各样的纹理。我用银色喷漆完成了一个单色的作品,但是它反映了它的环境,让观众成为了它的一部分。此外,作品有一个木制框架,这是对它与景观之间的相互关系的一种讽刺。总之,这个装置是森林砍伐的象征,传达了一个警示信息。
