< From Infinity to the End - Contradiction is Blooming >
We live in the common space between nature and the city, but with humankind's infinite demands upon nature, the depletion of all natural resources will become a matter of course. Can a city develop infinitely? And when will Mother Nature be depleted? Artist Sim Chan and design group LLAB Design make use of art installations, one in the form of a cityscape and the other with natural vegetation to raise awareness of the contradictions between humanity and the environment, with an aim to awaken people from the delusion of infinite consumption and so to put a stop to the possible disappearance of the scenery and things around us.
Human beings have directly and indirectly caused the extinction or imminent extinction of other species on earth. LLAB Design references over 100 rare plant species that are either extinct or on the brink of extinction, using seemingly strong but fragile material to show the robust, hardy beauty of the plants. They may look unreal, but they existed at one time. Do human beings realize that with endless development how few species of flowers will continue to bloom in the future?
