Garden of life and death.
I do not know if people are more afraid of life or death. I watch life and death every day. I see the beauty of passing away and the annual bloom of life. In passing I see life that brings a new chance. I see clues in the annual cycle.
My idea was to design a garden showing the beauty of extremes in a metaphorical way.
Black and dead trees sibolize death.
Stones and steel are to symbolize the constancy and immutability of elements existing in nature.
Water, low grasses and perennials show the eternal renewal of natural forces.
Between them is a space symbolizing the chances of every living being who can fill the void.
Open windows invite us inside. It’s an invitation to life. It welcomes us with open arms.
5 steps, it’s 5 stages of life. Childhood, youth, motherhood, maturity and old age. Walls are a symbol of the limitations that life brings.
