Names you meet in the forest

<Names you meet in the forest-ongoing project>

2019, marker on the window

I wrote the 770 whole botanical names of plants from the forest in Jeju Island in Korea on a window. Jeju Island's forest, called Gotjawal, has a very unique eco system, because Gotjawal vegetation in Jeju Island is distributed in the lava zone, generated by volcanic activity. It is one of the rarest vegetations in the world, and belongs to the temperate forests. The window in the museum is facing one of Gotjawals, which are very endangered nowadays, because of the development for tourism. So I wanted to recall the names of Plants as the forest's owner.
