funky forest

I am a tree and I need water! Dance with me! Guide the river!

Together with designer Emily Gobeille, Theodore Watson created the Funky Forest, an interactive ecosystem where people can grow their own tree with their bodies by posing in front of a huge canvas. The trees are watered by guiding a projected river on the floor.
"The health of the trees contributes to the overall health of the forest and the types of creatures that inhabit it."

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
