| NATURE V2.01 project 2006 -

Nature V2.01 project questions the contemporary definition of ‘nature’ in a world increasingly filled with genetically modified products.

 

Intended as a catalyst for the debates on the correlation between human, nature and the industry; these transformed tree series explores the possibility of organically manufactured artifacts in the form of conceptual seating pieces.

 

Their experiments, upholstered in natural tree bark, were made by gathering thousands of bark pieces of various kinds, painstakingly assembling them.

 

Since 2009, three pieces of these tree trunk series have been casted in bronze, a material valued for its patina that develops over time as in nature.
