One Day Poem Pavilion by Jiyeon Song

Using a vast array of perforations in the surface of the pavilion, sunlight is able to pass through to produce patterns that slowly come together to form legible poems. What’s exciting about this work is that the complex arrangement of holes means that different poems are created depending on the solar calendar. So during the summer months a theme of new-life is seen, but during the winter solstice a theme of reflection and the passing of time is produced. The short poems consist of 5 lines and change every hour as the sun passes over the pavilion. The slow reveal of the message through out the day offers a meditative moment in our hectic lives.

Ilkka Halso’s Museum of Nature:

"Museum of Nature is next step in continuum of imaginative nature restoring project, which started year 2000 as Restoration exhibition. Restoration series was about restoring single nature objects in means of technology and building skills. Museum project takes one step further. I make plans and construct visually buildings, which protect nature from treaths of pollution and and what is more important from actions of man himself. I visualize shelters, massive buildings where big ecosystems could be stored as at present. These massive building protect forests, lakes and rivers from pollution and what is more important from actions of man himself. At the same time I study different aspects of mans relation to nature as rare unique endangered place."
