Meetings with Remarkable and Unremarkable Trees


The title of this artistic research project alludes to the celebrated photography book Meetings with Remarkable Trees (1996) by Thomas Pakenham and is in some sense forming a counterpoint to it, by questioning what is remarkable and what is unremarkable, while focusing on individual trees.
Although we are often accused of “not seeing the forest for the trees”, this project wants to look at the opposite danger, not seeing the trees for the forest.
