La Gaite Lyrique, Paris – Electric Trees

Invisible Ink Prints come to life with human presence


Upon first glance, these trees appear lifeless—their branches are barren and depleted, bearing no leaves, flowers or fruit. The viewer’s presence causes a transformation to take place: when a person enters the gallery, the trees come to life and illuminate their foliage. The computer-generated leaf patterns and motion-sensor triggered “growth” underscore the often fraught but ultimately symbiotic relationship between man and nature.
