The Opposite of Nature is Impossible.

For my Geumcheon project I used Korean cardboard boxes. The boxes was formed into geodomes that also were used for projectors. The projections are from objects inside the boxes, they resembled images from nature. I used ocean fern, aquarium foliage and fake trees. The title of this work “Nothing About a Caterpillar Tells You About It’s Future”. I am very influenced by Buckminster Fuller and used two of my favourite quotes by him that was translated into Korean and used as part of the installation.

“The Opposite of nature is impossible.”  /  “We are not the only experiment”

    Hi Anja, Love this installation. At first, I did not realize that the red cords were extension cords for the projectors. They appeared to me as strings on the “balls” of cardboard or something like deflated helium balloons on the floor after a party. Hope to see you in Sept. xoxo Simone
