Dancing with Trees

2016-2017 Amsterdam Light Festival

This Artwork was presented by: The Amsterdam Light Festival. The location was inside The Hortus Botanicus, a botanical garden in Amsterdam founded in 1638. The Tree was projected onto The Three Climate Greenhouse. An audience member, standing in a specified location, shared their movements with the projected tree. The installation ran for a month, (Dec 9 to Jan 9) every evening. For the duration of the festival The Hortus Botanicus was free to the public as part of the Festivals Illuminade Walking Route.


This project was imagined in response the concept of BIOMIMICRY.

Biomimicry is an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges, by emulating nature's patterns and strategies. 

Artist Statement

An emotional and spiritual connection with nature creates the foundation for a sustainable future. When someone feels connected to their environment they are more inclined to care
