The Sculptural Tree form ascends from the water surface and looks like it “floats” on the water. Based on the basic form of a tree, there is a scientific approach to the art-installation because of the underlying concept, a look a like animal form is approaching the visitor when entering the Botanical Garden.
In the work the Artist is searching for a connection between the plant World and the Animal- Human World. The “Walking Tree “ could be seen as a missing link between the two stages, going back in ancient times when nature came out of the water and started to walk on the Earth.
The title of the work “Origin of Species” refers to a Botanical approach to see a missing link in Human Nature.
It is the perpetual cyclic renewal of life and infinity, the concept of eternity and the eternal return, and represents the cycle of life, death and rebirth. As soon as Nature creates any evolutionary process it is already working on a metamorphose towards another entity.
