Tube Merano
Art & Nature, Walking with Senses 24.03. – 05.06.2016., South Tyrol, Italy

The local curatorial team BAU invited us to participate in the second edition of “Art & Nature” titled Walking with Senses and held in Merano during the Spring Festival. The idea was to respond to the context and develop a dialogue between the installation and the natural environment/landscape - in this case the gnarly branches and lush foliage of the several magnificent pine-trees growing in the village park.
We took the undulating caterpillar of the Tube on a spiralling walk through the tree tops, suspending it from the branches and massive trunks, with additional fixtures on the grass terrain below. Due to the visual richness of the trees, the structural tendons are rendered almost invisible, adding to the wonder effect of a levitating forest skyway.
