A contemporary reinterpretation of the Banyan Tree sits majestically on the front lawn of the National Museum of Singapore, The Tree is a reconstruction from a series of interlocking frames with lights that pulsates gently in the night. Hanging microphones simulating that of aerial roots will also detect environment sounds and alter the lighting nature of the Tree – glowing intensely and dimming down with the rising and falling sound levels.
The Tree is an art installation by FARM Singapore, an arts and design community portal. With this installation, FARM hope this Tree will inspire people to slow down, take a breather and simply bask and partake in this recreation of nature’s wonder.
