Norfolk Island Pine. 2001, DVD, 28 min. looped. Showed on monitor or projected, sound

By means of a subtle interference in an everyday scenario with myself placed in front of my camera, off-centre, this work can be seen as dealing with the topic of nature contra culture, individual and society.


The recording that was made in the Copenhagen Botanical Garden also rises humorous questions regarding the true protagonist of the video, (the artist? the specific species of pine tree pictured to his right in the picture frame?). The slightly bewildered visitors to the botanical garden seem not to be able to tell the difference.
