With “Baumman” we invited the audience to explore the immersive and intertwined atmosphere of nature and humans by a playful installation of mirrors that surround a tree. Instalation created a magical atmosphere where nature and human melted into each other, at the same time it showed and confronted the visitors with boundaries of their perception and reality.
“Baumman” wanted to push the audience into a situation where humans and nature merge in a confronting way. This ambition of overcoming human perception seems to be challenging and limited. When we as humans look at nature and try to understand it, we still look at it from a human perspective. We still reflect and sense our own perception of reality, – we still reflect ourselves in the mirrors.
