The art installation designed to bring out the message on how to make people realize our forest is being endangered. Because the forest in Kuching is decreasing. The air is getting worse, the number of species is getting less and less, such as Hornbill is getting limited. Because they are on the verge of extinction, so we have the responsibility to protect them. So, we need to take care of our natural environment.
According to the present situation, then I design a “Snake shape sidewalk” as a small river of Kuching. The shape look from the front of started point is looks like a house shape arched, so that we seem to feel like walking in our house. The one way sidewalk inside including two different spaces. One is deforestation space, this space is dark and hot,because don’t have gap between the columns,we will feel so hard to breathe. It is mentioned that if we cut down the trees and what will happens, such as temperature increases, air getting worse and feel scary because of dark.
Another space is if we planting the trees and what will happens, if the people walk inside ,they will feel cold and bright, because the wind will go inside by the gaps of the columns, so we can breathe smoothly. From inside look to outside they can see a lot of animals statue, it is mentioned that the trees is the habitat of the animals, if we have trees so can see the animals.
From my design concept, it is necessary to protect the beautiful city of Kuching, because you do every little action at any time will affect the beautiful city of Kuching. Through this art installation, so they understand the importance of protecting the environment.
