Austrian Football Stadium Filled With Trees

This art installation by Klaus Littman is a dramatic, stadium-filling piece, filling a full-size football stadium with over 300 large trees. Entitled “FOR FOREST – The Unending Attraction of Nature”, the work reflects on the the way nature is so subjugated these days that it’s almost an arena spectacle, something for our attraction, versus a part of ourselves. It’s both sobering and inspiring, we’re sure it’d be impressive to view the strangeness of a forest within a stadium in person. On display now until October 27, 2019. Via Colossal:

Littman’s work is inspired by the work of Max Peintner, specifically  “The Unending Attraction of Nature” (1970/1971) which had a very similar tone.
