Trees to See the Sky Through
Video Installations in elevators
Photographic printing on glass interior and exterior glass windows
Public commission awarded for New Hospital area for Malmö Hospital, Sweden
Budget: SEK2 800 000:-
Start date: October 2019
Trees to See the Sky Through consists of video installation embedded in the elevator ceilings, and two photographic print installations on glass windows in the hospital atrium and the panoramic staircase across 11 floors with the same theme.
Trees are traditionally considered healing or sacred elements across cultures. Each tree in the installations symbolize different places and climate zones. Trees are also used here to reinforce the architectural vision for the building in a structural sense. A single tree printed along the staircase from bottom to top becomes a metaphor that unites the building and the site.
