HE CREATES...WE ASSEMBLE
A conceptual work based on the idea of George Balanchine, a
ballet choreographer and the founder of the New York City Ballet, that it
is God who creates and all we human beings can do is “to assemble”.
Plants have been selected as the symbol of God’s creation and their
evolution, visual and functional beauty are represented, with which a
series of “cheap tricks” by human beings who try to be “creative”
It is, however, doomed to a losing game for us; the earth will cease to
work someday and somebody on another planet, created by God, may see the
earth as a shooting star with all of us on it.
We will be finished, however, God will keep playing with his creative
ability for good.
