the tree walker
the Tree walker project
Christoph Both-Asmus had once wanted to be a maker of nature films and an environmental advocate, but during his studies he turned to Fine Art. In his work he combines sculptural environments, installations and drawings with performance and video. His materials are mostly organic and often alive. Both-Asmus describes the film project The Tree Walker as a meditation on life and our connection to plants, most especially trees.
Christoph Both-Asmus' new work The Tree Walker will be produced as a film in which the viewer sees an ocean of leaves, the sky and the artist Christoph Both-Asmus who walks as a central motif, weightless above the highest and most fragile branches of the trees.
The romantic and poetic imagery of The Tree Walker will be enriched with the newest botanical research, exploring the connection and interplay between humans and the rainforest.
