Re indicates repetition and/or withdrawal. In the case of the installation, the term was attributed to emphasize a constant call to action. EN(RE) was made up of three interventions:

  1. The construction of the word en(re) as a tridimensional structure filled with recycled plastic bottles from the Recollection Center of Dorado.
  2. Placing words from the en(re) notebook on the ground and the trees.
  3. Collecting them and annotating the experience in the en(re)

Tree Boat

Journey, a site-specific sculpture by Korean artist Myeongbeom Kim, is a participatory art project inspired by a voyage of cooperation, wish and meditation. It is comprised of an evolving rock sculpture or tower inside a local fisherman’s boat. Each stone corresponds to a personal wish that upon a boat begins an allegorical journey of contemplation and perhaps realization. The work is based on a popular Korean tradition that pertains to a folk religion influenced by Buddhism.
