elusive, more problematic, and – in a way- more deeply meaningful than anything so easily boiled down to an image. All the three landscape installations: “Pipe me not”, “Six Degrees” and “Raise” have illustrated a series of dynamics and playful adventures with visitor’s interaction and with ironic meaning of the weight of balloon and soil; to remind and to encourage people to “Communicate” outside their circles and to give a chance for people to “Speak Up”. These landscape installations exemplify how direct observations of landscape, art and urban phenomena can blossom into artistic endeavors, human interaction investigations, and open-ended inquiries; offering a refreshing dimensions of experience to the perceivers. “me.you.we”

Station 2: In Detail …“How does an untouched forest look like?”

The four landscape installations replace the former nature trail through a piece of forest in Vienna’s Zoo Schönbrunn and reflect four different aspects characterizing woodlands: dynamics, diversity, sustainability and cultural significance.

Jigsaw is a three-dimensional mural artwork executed by a non-profit organisation called Archrival who unites the creative community by applying strategic practice and new thinking about ways to reshape modes of architecture and the design practice.
