About the artwork

This is a small folly built along a river. It can be used as a resting place when playing in the water. The floor, walls and ceiling are built with the shapes of human beings, modeled on the people in the community. As a material to connect the site and people, “soil concrete,” with the soil collected from the area mixed with cement, was uniquely developed and used.
