Vision of Nature 眼界









Seven large magnifying glasses mounted with shiny metal frame welded on metal stands are placed randomly at different parts of a woodland. These frames draw attention to the framed part of the woodland, which produce enlarged and distorted images when the framed scenes have objects right in front of the magnifying glasses, and inverted ones when the framed scenes are faraway. The metal frames symbolized the scientific paradigm mediates our understanding and relationship with nature.

Towards the end of the trail is a full length mirror where a visitor would find oneself amongst the trees and scrubs, deviated from the role as an observer or knower.
