Concept

Does a tree stump stop living when it ceases to draw breath? Its roots intricately stretch out without end. We cannot know everything about a tree from the tip of its roots all the way to the tip of its branches. But by looking at those deeply burrowing roots, we can feel the tree breathing. "The Tree of Ube" is just as the name implies a tree in Ube. I looked for it and encountered it in Ube, and pull it out of the ground. A tree that you search for yourself, find and unearth is unique indeed. I scooped up the soil, shook the roots and wielded my pickaxe. In this action, the roots show me how sturdy and strong they are. Every single part communicates to me and takes my thoughts deeper and deeper.
