The tree's place

Year: 2009. Media: Video. Duration: 35 minutes.
Exhibition picture from Galerie Oehl-Früh, Hamburg 2011

The tree’s place shows trees filmed in Hamburg, Stockholm, Munich, Berlin, and the Swedish cities Göteborg and Örnsköldsvik. In the film short clips of trees are shown with original sound from the cities. Something that is usually in the background of human activities is in the film in foreground. In the film the trees are in focus in a meditative flow. Everything around hurrys by and the trees can be seen as a kind of peacefully observing individuals.
