About the Project

This project is located in a world historic heritage area. Its conservation and restoration incorporates historic rock rooms and natural lands.

Significance

The project area is very natural and historical. It's very difficult work and very important for the conservation of historic heritage. There were a lot of dangerous rocks in this project area. We cleaned the rocks, then made improvisational works in this dangerous area. I used steel and stone material in this application.

Lessons Learned

We did clean works on rocks. It's very difficult and dangerous to work in this area. This study is no different from making a giant statue. There are a lot of themes in my project: art-architecture-science-sculpture-conservation-restoration, etc.
