In our Open-air museum you can find three-dimensional visual artworks that were created by many artists from around the world. These sculptures often created for a specific place (“in-situ”) and designed to change the perception of our “space” here. The materials that our artists use are local and taken from our close surrounding. mixed-media constructions that composed of wood, metal, Bamboos, etc. We put our focus on how the viewers experience the artwork, they are the main actors. We strive, together with our artists to send the viewers messages that will follow our perspective and mindset.
Painting & Illustration
Each bungalow designed by a different artist, as a small and complete little world that stands up for itself. Besides our unique bungalows, there are many paintings to be seen around our village, some of them are hard to find, they might be small or big, using bright and bold colours, or just a monochromatic colour scheme. we would like you to wander around and explore, see what catches your artistic eye. make you own interpretation, this what art is all about!
Street Art & Mural
There is a thin line that goes between “street art” and a “painting”, sometimes this fine line is no where to be seen. Street art, as we consider the difference, is bolder, art with audacity, the idea behind street art is more about breaking all conventions- who defines what is ART? The “street” is where all of us are equal, no matter what is our background or where we come from. Street artists usually intend to make a personal statement about the society that the live within.
We watch over our land and take care of it in a very gently and carefully. The land gives as permission to live on it and be part of the nature. In our village, humans, animals and nature share the same land in harmonious co-sharing living system. When our artists find treasures on this land and give them a new life, new interpretation. As if these artworks are a way to show nature our appreciation.
Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human environments, based on close observation of natural systems. Our aim is to create systems that are ecologically-sound and economically viable, which provide for their own needs, do not exploit or pollute, and are therefore sustainable in the long term. Permaculture uses the inherent qualities of plants and animals combined with the natural characteristics of landscapes and structures to produce a life-supporting system.
In our village, permaculture is a top value. We strive to expose our guests to permaculture through workshops that we organize, our guests take an active part in experiencing permaculture. We guide them how to maintain the principals in their everyday lives through knowledge and practical methods.
KOH CHANG'S LEGACY
Koh Chang has developed rapidly through the past years. Tourism, industries, technology and international trade changed a lot the way people experience this island. We don’t forget the people who founded this place, the pioneers who built this island with their own hands. Back then, life was simple and worthy. These pioneers worked very hard to get results, they used old school techniques, worked the lands and grew crops farming in order to bring food to the table. In this history path that we take you through, we would like you to get to know the people behind the stories. Read their stories, see their faces, embrace their values, get to know their personalities. That past made us who we are today.
