Design | Design of an urban tree sculpture| Location: Shoreditch, London, UK | Area: NA
Installation at the Geffrye Museum for the London Design Festival.
The fractal tree is the manifestation of geometrical play stemming from the growth logic of tree branches. Operating as a city sculpture and a sustainable device, the timber structure transforms itself and its environment over the course of the day. Both metaphor and abstraction of its natural source, the fractal tree is an active abstraction stemming from the growth logic and recycling mechanic of nature. Crafted by advanced manufacturing, it is simultaneously prototypical urban shading and a water/vegetation collector device as well as a powerful evocation of the need for innovation associated with responsibility.
