Yun Liu likes to discover the relationship between human emotion, nature and indoor space. In her eyes, artifact is a medium that blurs the boundary between man and nature. At the same time, it is full of a sense of future, which fascinates her. Behind these things, there is often a rich culture.
This project is about the application of artificial nature in interior design and its significance. My research question is that, in the near future life, when artificial nature is applied to the interior space to form a new nature, can it become a symbol of civilization that representing the past landscape history, at the same time from a heterotopia? How can its significance be reflected in the era when consumerism grows rapidly with the development of science and technology? This problem arises because I find that I am often attracted by some nature objects. Perhaps it is since we live in the city for a long time and have an unconscious desire for nature. I began to think that nature is already very scarce in our life. Most of the plants in the city are deliberately planted after careful planning. But from another point of view, human beings are also a part of nature, and artificial objects should also belong to nature. In this way, the cars and buildings created by people are essentially the same as the nests created by swallows. But the forms of reinforced cement and wild nature objects are so different. As a medium to break the boundary between man and nature, the application of artificial nature in interior design makes me curious. Perhaps in the end, people will find that artificial fake nature is also a kind of real nature.
The purpose of this project is to alleviate the anxiety in the era of consumerism by studying the application and development of artificial nature in indoor space and starting from Foucault’s space theory of “heterotopia”. It aims to challenge the nature aesthetics of interior space and develop a new view of nature from the perspective of space. By creating a false of heterogeneous space, people can reflect on the real society.
