Untitled (Flying trees)

video, hd,  3min, colour, sound

camera: Carlo Clopath

 

The work is about the transportation of cut down trees by helicopters in Graubunden, Switzerland. The sky is shown, which is repeatedly traversed by „flying trees“: conifers or evergreens, commonly firmly rooted in the mountains, become uprooted. This way of carrying trees is not uncommon in the mountains, but quite expensive and therefore rarely applied.
