"Wrapped Trees" 97-98

It is interesting to note, that this project was rejected many times. Finally the art installation was allowed to commence in a few remote places in Germany. Over 178 trees were wrapped. The woven polyester fabric that was used is normally used to protect the trees from frost and heavy snow.

The Wrapped Trees pushed the translucent fabric outward and created dynamic volumes of light and shadow which moved in the wind creating new forms and surfaces taking shape by the ropes used on the fabric.

Quite a magical perspective.
