DEADWOOD HOME

As a rich ecosystem that can accommodate a variety of creatures in nature, dead wood acts as a currier connecting human and non-human interactions. I wanted to zoom in on this stump so that people could go inside and see the microscopic world of biological aesthetics in the trunk. 

The prototype is called deadwood home. It is home not only to dead wood but also to many plants and animals.The installation is a structure built by deadwood and built on a stump which has the memorable rings, it can be used as a leisure place for people as well as the park’s deadwood recycling center.

What’s more, due to the biological nature of the dead wood itself, it forms a separate ecosystem of dead wood, a community of fungi, insects, and small animals.

It’s easy to forget what the trees were like before they were cut down, but the rings tell the story of the stump, and it was once relied upon by many small animals. If this is a towering tree, human beings as small as insects, then people should have a different understanding of it.

So I used the tree ring and stem section structure as the construction logic of the installation. Each wood is like the cells inside the trunk, growing and dying.Its structure consists of three parts. According to the previous concept analysis, the installation has a clear idea of shape generation.

In order to enlarge the trunk. I use the stump of the cut tree as the pith of the new tree. As long as the center is there, the tree will not die. I combine the micro cell cross section of stem structure with the cross section of trunk, and explore the layered construction structure by using the growth natural aesthetics.
