Space Tree (2024)

15 min 03 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

Passing over a series of inner-city sites, the Space Tree glides in perpetual movement. Like a mysterious extra-terrestrial organism, it flourishes in countless directions, defying conventional patterns of growth whilst seeming to follow a pre-determined web. Although not yet manifest in the local ecosystem, sustenance for the Space Tree comes from its continuous visits to Auckland locations including the cemetery, Zoo, and city centre. Finally, it bursts beyond the boundaries of the city. The combination of the Space Tree's organic growth and virtual interconnectedness represents both a technological fantasy and a mirror of the dynamic nature of our modern world.
