Metal Tree

Metal Tree

This tree is made up of many small metal pieces. Some of the pieces are longer and some shorter than others, but in general they are about 5cm long. I made it by welding all the pieces together in the metal workshop, and using an actual tree as reference (as in welding around the tree) during the entire process. The thing that inspired me to make this artwork was the theme of the course, which was ‘’Camouflage’’. Since trees are an essential part of nature it came to my mind to make a tree, since a tree would blend in nicely with nature. It is very apparent that the tree does not completely belong in the forest because it is made out of metal, but at the same time it does fit into nature; and as time passes by, the metal will get rusty and the colors will blend even more into the rest of the environment.
