 '<Reverse-Rebirth> project is a plan for 100 years.

This work is a time based project and it changes its shape as time passes. It starts from a tree as timber being made into furniture which becomes trash to be recycled art work eventually creating the base of a new plant… one Big New Tree.

With this project, I hope to start a very special and never ending story. Theoretically it will become alive 100 years after. You can imagine a garden. It will slowly decay over 10 years. At the same time, it can make some small wild world though itself. Afterwards, there will be a beautiful and historical old tree.'
