“The Spirit of the Forest” is an interdisciplinary new media art work of a group collaboration. “ The Spirit of the Forest” by Xiaohong Zhang / Bill Miller/ Jeff Herriott / Ying Xu was selected as a showcase at 6th CSIG China Visualization Conference Arts Program ( China VISAP 19) in Chengdu, China. The committee decided to extend their invitations of exhibition for my new work to both July 2020 and July 2021.
Today we live in a world of ecological imbalance, pollution, and climate change. “The Spirit of the Forest” intentionally promotes human awareness of environmental protection and sustainability by embodying the beauty and power of nature. Human beings and nature should form the unity of lives. The object of this work is in line with the theme of this exhibition, “Sharing and coexistence." Forests and prairies are the natural habitats shared by people and other life forms all over the world since the beginning of civilization. Sustaining the Mother Earth is a matter we all need to attend to now.
