Milena Popov – Nena
Video, colour, sound
In this series of videos that follows seasonal changes in my family garden, I collaborated with my parents. The series is inspired by traditional East Asian paintings of four seasons. Seasonal changes not only symbolize the life cycle (and other cyclical systems that exist in the universe), but also virtues of the natural world that can cultivate one’s mind if one is open for learning. Each video starts with a haiku poem by Matsuo Basho.
