    by Myun Gyun You (EAF13) ABOUT THE WORK: A monumental bright and energetic piece, The Lotus Land creates a harmonious connection with both nature and human society through an unlikely material – 15,000 plastic bags. Standing thirty feet in the air with a diameter of nearly 30 feet, the form is both non-representational and seemingly boundless. The continuous fluttering of the loosely woven blue bags creates a feeling of endless space that emanates from the unseen center of the work and adds an ephemeral quality of natural energy.
