The Idea Of A Tree

July 9th, 2008

Powered by nothing but sunlight and some threads, Thomas Traxlers‘ “The idea of a tree project” shows us how objects can grow during the course of a day. The installation is powered by a couple of solar cells which power the entire device, causing the process to move faster or slower depending on the amount of available light. The speed of the process determines the amount of saturation of the thread, giving a visual recording in the resulting object. Thomas Traxler just graduated from the IM Masters department of the Design Academy Eindhoven, 2008.
