It can be hard to find an escape in the middle of a bustling city, but that is exactly what the Cicada installation provides. Located in the city of Taipei, Cicada is focused on the natural elements of life.

The installation was designed by Marco Casagrande, an architect from Finland. Surrounded by concrete, cement and rocks, Cicada is like a breath of fresh air among its industrial setting. The art piece is made out of bamboo to give its structure ample room to breathe, while the subtle slits also allow natural light to stream into the installation itself.

The Cicada art piece is a lovely reminder to stop and smell the roses when life seems to be taking on too much at the same time.
