Memory Tree

I saw the loneliness of elderly people who were sitting as I was passing by their building… I thought I could do something for them and asked them to write on paper and describe their loneliness and the memories that they could not tell anyone. Hanging these fading memories on the tree, I aimed to revive them. People who came to see the memory tree at the performance hour revived these memory leaves as the water refreshes the tree.
