Second life

Green Summer, Verbeke Foundation, Kemzeke, BE



Will Beckers’ "Second Life", ECO ART installation was exhibited at the Verbeke Foundation, as part of the "Green Summer" exhibition, in 2010.

In his "Second Life" installation Beckers was Recyling Nature. He gave the natural materials a chance at a new life by creating a growing installation which will take 2 to 3 years to be complete. "I found this fantastic forest of Salix and I wanted to use them to create a new living organism."

The new shoots can be seen growing and starting to take root, injecting the installation with renewed life. Nature is recycling itself and sustainability is at work.

The Green Summer exhibition is about making people aware of our Ecology. What is happening to our rich source of plants and endangered animals, the eco system, and global warming.
