After a series of small altars, the opportunity to display in a vast space with young audiences give me the idea to create a huge altar that invites visitors to step in and offer (part) of themselves, praying to the spirit of the trees. During the exhibition period, the altar becomes a physical space to interact and for most young people, to “check-in”. In this man-made-dominant space, entering the altar somehow turns into an oblivion act, meanwhile, the sign still stays meaningful to only a few who even perform the act of offering.
