|Description:||Since ancient times humans have strived to represent or emulate the beauty of the natural world. In the Chinese literati tradition, scholars would not only decorate their studies with paintings, jades, and ceramics that portrayed the natural world outside, but they would also collect and display naturally-formed rocks. What kind of object is more valuable then, the natural or man-made? And what does it mean to own an object? In Stone Journey conceptual artist Lee Mingwei poses these two questions to visitors and invites them to contemplate what they would choose.
