In this project, our topic is “living with the tree”, we did two installation works which are related to the tree. Tree is an important part in the city, people grow them and take care of them, trees take their own place in our city. So we decided to use the tree as our tool and connection to claim the city. For the first one, we tried to build a relationship between my body and the body of the tree and to create a space between the tree and me. We used toilet tissue to wrap my body with the tree and used video to document the processes. For the second one, we tried to make a “bathroom” in the space which was created between the tree and the ground. We fill a plastic bag with water and then hang it on the tree.
