Yang Guang (b.1974), China

Another Scene

Sculpture, Metal, resin, waste circuit board, 700x620x430cm , 2017
Location:  Raffles City Shenzhen, China

 

Science’s and technology’s advancements improve the life of Mankind, but there are negative outcomes of these developments too – one of the most urgent environmental issue being the increase in output of electronic waste. As if a reversal of roles, Yang Guang’s Another Scene utilises electronic waste to replicate a tree, an element of Nature. Thus, this artwork which reflects both the relationship and conflict between Man and Nature, invites passerby not just to view but also to contemplate their roles and rethink better ways to interact with Nature.
