Fall Installation

Fall installation12-thumb.jpg

The installation was inspired by my first experience of the beautiful, Bostonian fall. Driven by this experience, I have created the "Fall" installation in the Doran Gallery, MassArt, Boston.The "Fall" installation is composed of real leaves placed in a circle on the floor of the gallery. The leaves are shaped as a perfect circle, made out of two hues of leaves. At the middle of the circle, there are red leaves which are surrounded by yellow and brown leaves. The viewer can view, smell and touch the leaves.  read more »
