Impossible Trees by WOLFS + JUNG is an ongoing series of constructed nature. These works, first started in Belgium with their earlier tree project 'NATURE V2.01(2006 - 2010)', involve exploration of natural textures, organic shapes and forms, and human perception of nature.

 

Intended neither to look fully natural nor artificial, these objects at first sight may look as if they had been found as such; but upon close inspection, reveal themselves to be impossible trees, growing in the shapes and directions that could not occur naturally.

 

Sculpted in recomposing hundreds of natural tree bark fragments and then casted using lost-wax techniques, these bronze seatings and sculptures question what we perceive as 'natural,' reflecting today's world of biotechnology and increasing human manipulation of nature.
