Natural and Artificial Forms

Gnarled roots cling to a crumbling wall at Huashan 1914 Creative Park in Taipei.

I captured these banyan trees wrapped around a crumbling wall in Huashan 1914 Creative Park, one of the biggest and most popular civic attractions in Taipei 台北. Although it has recently been described as a fake cultural park, I happen to think it is one of the more interesting sights to check out in the middle of town. There are always all sorts of events going on throughout the park and it is home to a number of cool, artsy businesses, particularly VVG Thinking, which I call “hipster heaven” (a subject for another post). Here I am mainly interested in sharing the aesthetics of conjoined natural and artificial forms. Beautiful, isn’t it?
