TREE HUGGER

POLAND / THE NETHERLANDS

Tree Hugger by Daan van Hasselt and Asia Jackowska invites you to hug a tree. When you embrace a tree a sensor lights up the entire tree, also affecting surrounding trees. The work is inspired by the underground connections trees make with each other in order to survive storms and even tsunamis.
