“Hanji Tower” is an embodiment of the delicate yet durable nature of Hanji paper, crafted into three intricately detailed stone-like sculptures. The 3-dimensional artworks invite viewers to contemplate our relationship with Nature, specifically the ancient tradition of stacking rocks as a symbiotic wishing ritual between Human and Nature. “Hanji Tower” offers a critical reflection on the social rock stacking behaviour challenging us to slow down and consider how our past practices have impacted our present interactions with the environment.
