give me one good reason why we should go on living
besides for the sake of those who care about us
distance makes the heart grow fonder because it makes memory grow weaker
late night heart breakin
Global Tree Project - Hanging Garden
Japanese artist Shinji Turner-Yamaoto has been creating jaw-dropping, site-specific installations for his Global Tree Project. His latest, “Hanging Garden.” is on display now in the abandoned deconsecrated Holy Cross Church in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Hanging Garden encourages community participation in the creation of each sculpture. Local volunteers help the artist to locate and transport a chosen tree for his installation and then participate in its re-planting when the exhibition ends. The living tree must also be watered and looked after throughout the exhibition. The process encourages local residents to actively engage with the land and plants that sustain them.
