What if trees could talk?

Which stories would they tell
throughout the centuries?

Silent Observers – A Natural Art Installation in Light

 Silent Observers is an art installation made of tree discs that are brought to life through precise projection mapping. Large trees have long life spans and silently endure the changing times around them throughout history. Their aliveness is often overlooked and they are treated as a mere resource. By accentuating their innate growth rings with animated projection content, we draw attention to the fact that trees are living beings.

Silent Observers at Vivid Sydney 2023

The video projection content if this artwork intends to accentuate the innate features of each tree disc by tracing the individual seasonal growth rings. The animated light is only revealing the features that already exist and breathes life back onto the wooden surface. The result is a hypnotic dance of pulsating lines.

Silent Observers is accompanied by a custom composed audio track that enhances the atmosphere and experience.
