Floating Forest in Brookfield Place

The art installation titled ‘Floating Forest’ by Canadian artist Max Streicher hangs over the heads of people walking through the great hall of Brookfield Place. The trees are manufactured from recycled billboard vinyl and are a memorial to lost forests. The “mirage in an urban landscape” has trees that maintain their shape with internal fans so “It is a forest on life support, pointing to the futility of a civilization whose aspirations are frequently in conflict with the earth.” The piece will be in the long hall of the Allen Lambert Galleria from until April 22, 2011.
