Trees take thousands of years to grow, but desolation takes only a moment.

The Lust Forest into Desolation narrates the karma of environmental protection through the metaphor of the natural form of magnetofluid and the dynamic brushes of Chinese calligraphy. The magnetofluid and iron powder are deformed by the external force, illustrates the plants growing from a tree to the woods may take thousands of years but a moment to destroy everything. Employing Chinese calligraphy and Zen vide, I dynamically write up industrialized inorganic objects spelling out the macroscopic change of forest scarcity.

PROCESS

Spread around all the 

     ground, like Chinese 

     calligraphy. 

     Finally, they form a “森” 

     — Chinese character, 

     which means forest.

Sprout to grow

Suffered from human-

     caused destruction, like disafforestation, 

     water resource pollution and so on.

     The ruthless human cause the final       

     “荒”, Chinese character, which means desolation.

MATERIAL EXPLORATION

Combine them to explore different forms

Nails, Iron Powder, Magnetic Fluids:

By artificial magnetic attraction, the iron powder takes on the form of clusters, more on the bottom and less on the top, resembling grass.

From basic form to dynamic:

The dynamic characteristics of the material are similar to the morphology of natural plants.

From dynamic to calligraphy:

Discover and reveal the beauty of inorganic material and Chinese Calligraphy.

IN THE FUTURE

With a new vision, the journey of discovery

is beyond limits and the goals of explorations

are beyond a single answer.

In the future, I will bring this experimental effect into interactive

works, producing interactive experiences that allow participants to explore with me the relationship between inorganic materials such as magnetic fluids and iron powder and nature.
