19. Ko, Seung-hyun (Korea)

Kayagum
Unserland at Ahlheim-Licherode
A long curved pine tree with branches is transformed into a musical instrument which took the traditional Korean Kayagum as an example. A part of the tree became the resonance body. Bridges hold the strings and visitors are invited to play, but also the wind awakens the instrument to life.
