Inspired By Keiko Sato

These stumps make me think about the energy and strength that is contained inside a living tree and how their impact on the landscape reflects that.

Also I think of this quote….”The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.”
–  Nelson Henderson

keiko sato outer world installation

This installation was created by Keiko Sato.  Here is the description from Sato’s website:

“The outer world” is literally the outside world which confronts people. Soil, sand, and leaf mold. Vines and withered leaves. Logs cut from huge trees. If you look at the basement from the ground floor balcony, approximately 30 island-like groups composed of soil and logs are scattered across the floor. Memories of scenes in nature captured by Sato are gathered, spread, and uplifted. By going downstairs to the basement, your viewpoint shifts from a distant view to a close-range view. Viewed close by, there are electronic parts of different colors such as a transistor, a condenser, or electric wires with their covers removed. They add color to the monotone world like flowers benefiting from the faint sunlight filtering down through the trees deep in a dense forest. Attached to the logs are innumerous strings that reach up to the ceiling.
