In Japan, where the creators live, trees are considered natural architectural structures with great evocative power. The project looks at these natural monuments as homes for other species, such as birds, but also as a playground resembling an adventure park with equipment for inventing new forms of action among the branches.
The metal sculptures appear to be objects of discovery in an adventure, set on the treetops, almost like relics transported by a natural force that has reversed the orders of things, creating a landscape waiting to be reinvented through play.
