7. Big Dig Garden

About the Exhibition Park: Everyone has a dream about the world in his or her own heart, fancying the scene at the other end of the world. In my childhood, I have been told by adults that if I kept on digging a hole in the earth, I would finally get to China. What a crazy and wonderful idea. I cannot help practicing my childhood dream in Xi’an International Horticultural Expo: to dig a mysterious hole in the ground, through which everyone can travel to the other side of the world.

About the Exhibition Park: Chinese civilization is build on clay which means the “Earth”(土) has profound meaning. Clay also lays the foundation for the prosperity of Xi’an. I will use yellow earth, fountains, stone carvings and clay sculptures to display the climate, botany characteristics, and culture idea of the loess land. It’s an exploration and understanding to Chinese culture attempted by a foreigner.
