Markus Schroll :: FOREST CONNECTED
A forest is a communication center for the nature. The ecological chain of a forest is a perfect system of relationships, an underground rhizome, where there is a complex network of connections generated with the roots of the different species that are distributed by its subsoil.
The „Forest connected“ project explores the visibility of the underground and hidden networks, using light as metaphor, as the Conductive thread. Three site-specific installation, which try to connect with the communicative forest system. "Forest connected :: stars" establishes a parallelism between the stars and the micro roots dispersed in the subsoil. "Forest connected :: umbrellas" explores natural and segmented nature management. Finally, "Forest connected :: sticks" traces a winding path through colored lights, like shoots of light plants.
