One Pine

research, public spaceAsnate Bockis

'One Pine' is project about one tree and two very different cultures- Japanese and Latvian. In both cultures pine plays an important role but differs in meaning and appearance. This work is a conversation that enables direct communication and empathy between cultures by using common symbols rather than uncommon words.

Project created for exhibition Fujisawa Art Route. Curators Kaoru Sasaki and Naoaki Itoh.
