Fifty-five by Nine.

Bamboo is not only a traditional building material in China, but it is also found in the huge scaffoldings erected to create modern architecture. Bamboo represents nature, growth, adaptivity, and emanates a sense of tranquillity; yet at the same time, it is symbolic of the structures created by human: artificial, static and overwhelmingly complex.

Inspired by this unique relationship of natural and man-made objects, Fifty-five by Nine explores the role of organic form in space. Through a lattice of vertical poles, adjacent walls, light and shadow, the installation attempts to influence and define an empty space. As viewers move through it, the obtrusiveness and density of the structure call to question how urban spaces influence an individual’s behaviour and emotions.
