3D tree projections - HUMANATURE

Japan / Australia / Cuba / UK / Singapore, 1994 - 2008


HUMANATURE is a site-specific project, which transforms plants and trees by day into monumental sculptures by night. This illusion is produced through slide or video projection of computer-manipulated portraits, pre-recorded video or live video feeds of actors onto trees, which have a similar 3-Dimensional form as a the human head. The outcome of this process is monumental heads glowing in the darkness, often perceived by the audience as a giant hologram or an elaborate form of topiary. In the case of live video feeds, the audience can freely converse with the tree in a real time interactive event.
