The installation “The Trail to Eden Garden” is the artist’s imaginary utopia and dystopia rooted in an ongoing interest to shift the relationship between humans, nature, and technology. The installation was built with waste materials such as cardboard, water-decayed plastic pieces, and brown paper bags. It coexists with biodegradable, eco-friendly materials such as pestalotiopsis microspora (a plastic-eating mushroom), blood-worms composting within a ceramic pod, and living plants. The theoretical system proposes environmentally sustainable living practices while still acknowledging the presence of dysfunctional residents and conditions. The restorative making process and continual supervision require performative human labor, which has a significant role in maintaining the system.
