Summary/Artist's Statement
Everyone knows what nature is, but this impetuous world disconnects us from it. We, as humans, help to create negative impacts on nature. However, the COVID-19 pandemic was like a serious warning from nature; it forced us to slow down and reflect on our actions. Humans need to develop a better relationship with nature and show it more respect. My project is inspired by the environmental aspect of a traditional Chinese philosophy called Taoism. It teaches people to live in harmony with nature and follow the way of Tao. "Harmony" is an app that helps people cultivate their inner energy by using the energy from nature. People can appreciate nature's beauty and reconnect with themselves. Next, "RE" exposes the consequences of human greed. Humans should re-recognize the importance of nature and understand how much it contributes to human civilization. Coexisting with nature is the long-term prosperity of human civilization.
