The design expresses the gradual change of the environment-the expansion of barren land, because of human activities. Each elements-tree, house, and boatman, are designed to work as handles in order to move the layers. This moving gesture signifies taking away of the beautiful things we have in life, and deteriorating the pollution in exchange. The three stages are nature, what we have, and ourselves. We lose nature, then our possessions, finally ourselves as a species. The materials used here are sterling silver, copper, and walnut wood. Sterling silver symbolizes the valuable and beautiful aspects of our lives, while the oxidized copper gives the impression of disaster and desperation.
