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?

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
