Kristen Cooper, Uli Westphal, and Han Seok Hyun in front of Seck Hyun's work-in-progress, large scale, permanent sculpture, entitled Reverse-Rebirth at Idaho Botanical Garden on July 21, 2018 in Boise, Idaho.

The work of Korean artist Han Seok Hyun addresses the dichotomy of ''artificial nature,'' calling attention to man’s handling of the natural world observable in contemporary urban environments. In Reverse-Rebirth, Han takes nature into his own hands. Reclaimed wood, discarded furniture, native plants, and locally foraged seeds compose the monumental tree-like sculpture that continuously evolves over time and throughout the seasons. The work reaches for a symbiosis with the given environment, while Han pushes the boundaries of a domesticated relationship with Mother Nature.
