'Transplant' explores the complex relationships between man and nature. Although man has influenced processes of nature in order to incorporate nature into the human world, the essential wildness of natural objects prevails. Mass-produced plants undergo continual changes such as the processes of decay like a fallen tree in the forest. This work, which began with confronting the managed forest in the botanical garden, has focussed on the wild commonality of natural objects in the tension between cultural and natural aspects and eventually reached transplanting mass-produced plants into the environment of the studio and the forest based on responding to the natural cycle hidden in those objects. Interestingly those plants isolated and not belonging to any habitat while involving my aesthetics.
