In the exhibition, The Hall of Disappearing, most viewers thought that these shells were painted, however the shells naturally grow in this spectrum of tones, which is what attracted me to arrange them in this way. It is just this kind of confusion/complication of what is "nature" and what is "culture" that is interesting to me.
