THESIS STATEMENT

Since everything we created or the way we thinking in nowadays are human-centered (or based on human's needs), but actually, the natural objects in this world should be on the same level. For example, we think we plant the potatoes and we control it. However, we can't tell whether it is we controlled the potatoes or they controlled us. Eccentric botany encourages us to abolish the center and try to understand the things from an equal level. 

 

Based on this concept, my thoughts on the project is about history. We have the history, and we understand the history from maybe human migration, wars, discovery and so on. But all of these are from human's perspective. But trees, or other natural objects should also have their own perspective to understand the history. So what if we understand the history, or the culture, or some background stories from tree's perspective?
