When we decided to open an ecological art space, we made a firm decision to design and build as much as possible ourselves. As a result, most materials were salvaged from demolished homes, and all of the work was done by our hands and those of like-minded volunteers. Here is the result!
During her time at The Branch, animator Heeyoung Park reminds us how the fragile existence of our lives (the seed within us) inevitably holds enormous potential for power and beauty.
An ecological art lab and pocket farm located in Osaka, Japan conceived and built by Patrick M. Lydon and Suhee Kang with help from donors and volunteers from Japan and around the world. The space hosts community workshops and exhibitions by an international cast of resident artists, all aimed at re-kindling our relationship with nature.
For her exhibition “Extraordinary Tales of Everyday Life,” Jeongran hid little artworks in the corners of the tiny library, on shelves, and even in the bathroom. She shared both her painstaking process of art creation, and alongside it, the beauty in the little things.
Our bi-weekly Environment in Review (EiR) is loaded with inspirations and solutions for social and ecological well-being, ranging from national initiatives to community projects.
