The idea of this project was to capture for New Zealand typical phenomena and translate these into an object. This was about wind-blown trees that grow completely out of their normal shape on the hillsides on the ocean and the laid-back mentality of Kiwis.

The frame is made of steel tube and consists of 5 parts: the root, 3 tree trunk parts and the crown. For assembly these pieces slide into each other. Their order is given by the preassembled power cable, which runs through all of them.
