Cotree3 copy

COTree is a physical installation shaped like a swirl plant. The installation has a CO2-sensor measuring the surroundings, and depending on the concentration the tree will either wither or grow – the leafs will change shape and colour. The measurements determine the life of COTree. That way the presence of the viewer has a direct impact on the life of COTree. Normally it wouldn’t be possible for the human eye to see the impact of CO2 on our environment but COTree makes it visible. The viewer sees a part of reality that hopefully will be hard to forget.

COTree is made by Lasse Vestergaard, Joakim Old Jensen, Christina Exner, Kirstine West Andersen, Anna Lindebjerg, Agnete Horup, and Nikolaj Christian Mikkelsen.
