In the Form Change/Transformation theme the artist wants to study different ways of creating works of art that, in the broadest sense, change their form, colour or medium.
‘The Expanding Tree’ is the visualisation of a concept, the 3D-animation of an idea. The artist might decide to make it an installation at a later date.
This 3D animation shows a pneumatic tree in nature. The tree consists of metal tubes (its trunk and branches) and of elastic and inflatable volumes (its foliage). The foliage is air driven: the volumes are gradually inflated and let down. In this way the fake tree imitates natural growth: from a naked tree to one full of leaves.
