Artist:Ana Laura Aláez(Spain [Basque])

The work is installed on a rocky coastal outcrop with views of the setting sun on the horizon, restored salt fields, mountain-side rice fields cut into the coast, and the unique satoyama/satoumi inland and oceanside scenery of Suzu. The artist imagined the work taking the form of the Tree of Knowledge there, as if reflecting the human experience. “It’s as if I’ve depicted a ‘human-like nature’ or a tree that exists in another world,” she remarked. The tree, a source of power from the past, points to another future, creating a place where all generations, young and old, can come together.
