Hollow

Hollow , is located in Royal Fort Gardens and represents the planet’s history and evolution through time.

This Public artwork is created by conceptual artist Katie Paterson and architects Zeller & Moye.

Spanning millions of years, Hollow is a miniature forest of all the world’s forests, telling the history of the planet through the immensity of tree specimens in microcosm. This immersive piece of architecture brings together over 10,000 unique tree species,including petrified wood from the earliest forests that emerged over 390 million years ago; a sample from the oldest tree in the world, and some from the youngest and near-extinct species.

Forming the inside in all directions, the untreated wooden pieces are organised in an organic yet precise manner specific to the origins, types and characteristics of the wood. Shifted and staggered to each other, thousands of blocks conjoin to form one immense cosmos of wood producing textures, apertures and stalactites.  Inside Hollow, light filters through apertures in the ceiling, suggesting sunlight radiating through a forest.

Gregory Crewdson: Cathedral of the Pines

 

Cathedral of the Pines is the latest body of work by American fine art photographer Gregory Crewdson.  His photographs are both dramatic and cinematic. While his images often capture what appear as disturbing or surreal real-life events, they are in fact carefully staged and lit using motion picture film equipment and techniques.

This series, mark a time of transition for Crewdson, including the end of his marriage and a retreat from New York to a remote home and studio in western Massachusetts―a period of time during which Crewdson chose to remain socially withdrawn, instead committing to daily, long-distance, open-water swims and cross-country skiing on wooded paths. Cathedral of the Pines is named after one of these trails.

"Although it might be hard to tell, this picture was made under crazy winter conditions. It was below zero that day, and the wind was brutal. The house we were shooting in was really a summer lake cabin, and didn't have central heat. We had space heaters going in the room around the subject to keep her warm, but basically it was freezing in there. You can see on the windows further from camera, we left the ice on the inside of the glass. Neal from our art department had to keep scraping the ice off the other two so we could see through. The camera was positioned outside, and the battery kept freezing. And the camera crew was all huddled in a little group behind the camera, like chickens in winter.""Woman at Window," 2014, Digital Pigment Print, Image size 37 1/2 x 50 inches (95.3 x 127 cm), Framed size 45 1/16 x 57 9/16 inches (114.5 x 146.2 cm), Edition of 3, plus 2 APs. ©Gregory Crewdson
