Huge Ginkgo seed sculpture in Oregon

A huge Ginkgo seed "Ginkoberry Gwa" bronze sculpture by NYC artist Ming Fay at the Oregon Convention Center (MLK Concourse -Ginkoberry-), Portland, Oregon.

The interior street which joins the Oregon Convention Center has two 14ft high bronze Ginkgo seeds installed on the north and south entrances as the "pillar of time". Above them are three clusters of Gwa flowers (American mythological Gwakalekala tree).
The artist was inspired by the Ginkgo forests of prehistoric Oregon.

Ginkgo Messenger Art Project

Embodying a mobile and upside-down Ginkgo bonsai, multidisciplinary artist Mei-Kuei Feu presented her public art project for the first time in various neighborhoods of New York City in 2008. Fascinated by its beauty and its amazing history, the artist works with the Ginkgo’s fan shaped leaves as a medium for conveying printed images which reflect tragedies of the last century and the passion of present day life. Through a process of exchange, the public are invited to write their wishes for life on a photo shaped like a Ginkgo leaf, and in return, receive a real Ginkgo leaf stamped with "Ginkgo messenger".The Ginkgo Messenger project is born from a series of research work on a dialogue between humans and house plants. Linking the internal environment of our body and the external natural environment, the artist wishes to create a garden that is both intimate and public."

Click here to visit the artist's non-commercial interactive website
"Ginkgo Messenger" and write your wish or dream on a Ginkgo leaf.
