This is a movie documentation of my solo exhibition "Tree Rings"
Jan 30th - Feb 5th, 2012
Galley 479, UCSB
A solo exhibition by Yoon Chung Han
"Tree Rings" explores sound’s organic essence by visualizing it’s time dimension as a spiral series of tree rings, modulated by urban soundscape transcribed to waveforms. This piece highlights the natural harmonic beauty of sound - when used outdoors, the sounds of our renovated urban cityscape can be used to regenerate a relic of the natural landscape that was destroyed so that it could exist. By showing our individual and societal voices and sounds in tree ringform, we stay true to the spirit of the rings, preserving the imagery for a more modern age.
"Tree rings" contain real trees’ narratives - their history, time and space in spiral timeline shapes. Trees provide beauty and inspiration, they help free oxygen to keep us breathing, yet we destroy them for our benefit regularly, using their body parts for housing, cardboard, even for temporary data storage needs. Trees invented the first ‘ring memory’, many thousands of years before humans discovered electricity.
