Walking around trees

December 2011 I started walking around buildings to make pictures from all sides. My initial aim was to create a big virtual city scape, but soon I found it it was more interesting to stack all images on top of each other in transparent layers. The result: a building seen from all sides at once.

Meanwhile, with my old artist group De Tropisten I was busy preparing an exhibition in the Amsterdam Hortus Botanicus. This gave me the idea to make pictures of trees. Unlike buildings, trees don't have a back or front side, so being able to look at a tree from all sides liberates it from one of the peculiarities of the human perspective. 

Most trees grow in an urban environment (streets, squares, parks, an airport, a patio) and are thus always part of the city planning. The space surrounding the tree changes as a result of the rotating perspective and plays an important role in the final result.
