The Tree Project: Expressive Tree Faces on Rotting Trunks

German artist duo Zonenkinder created The Tree Project in 2006, in which they transform trees which are about to rot into work of art. The artists travel around the world like in France, Germany and Denmark, finding new ways to create art through these inanimate objects. Once they find an inspiring blank canvas, they use biodegradable products to paint eyes, noses, and mouths across the surface of the wood, visually bringing new life to the hidden personalities of each tree. These various cute, playful, and grumpy tree faces, visually bringing new life to the hidden personalities of each tree and perfectly demonstrates the idea of this project “trees are exceptional and beautiful living individuals and we should emphasize our connection with nature.” [source]
