Neo-Eocene: Malmo : Ta höjd för : Spiral

A detailed set of horticulturalist instructions, a landscape score, to be given to local practitioners from which to establish a grove of prehistorically native trees that last grew in the forests of Scandinavia during the Paleocene-Eocene, some 56 million years ago.

Time is an essential part of agriculture. When a farmer plants a tree the farmer has future generations in mind as she cannot harvest the tree herself – perhaps not even her children. This sculpture visualizes the future scale of recently planted trees.
