Title:
In the Sound of Shedding Leaves #3

Description:
This is an on-going work. I have always been concerned about the relationship and interaction between human beings and the space they live in (both natural space and urban space) . And I am always pursuing and yearning for landscape, especially natural landscape. In the course of that watching, I found that human behaviors reflected in natural space is multidimensional and contradictory. In our daily life, it is not difficult to find that we tend to destroy, ignore and control the nature or natural objects. At the same time, we also have the desire to get close to nature, including possession and dependence, and other emotional interaction states. These series of observations caused me to ponder the connection between man and nature, and to wonder intensely about the emotional and spiritual activities of man directed towards nature. I try to explore the relationship between humans and nature as well as the complex inner feelings of myself and others towards nature through the interaction between human, natural elements and natural space. Lead reading When you heard the rustling leaves in the noise of the city, whether you woke up to realise, as I did, touchable natural is always around; whether you pondered, as I did, our intricate perceptions and emotions about nature; and did you, as I did, impulsively explore our relationship with nature? Then, are you aware of that we are all drawn to nature unconsciously at some point?
