Forest without trees
Abbas Kiarostami has transformed one of the Victoria & Albert Museum galleries in London into a "three dimensional forest of trees, made up of huge hollow tubes completely covered by life size photographs of bark. The installation is part of long term investigation by Kiarostami into the way we see our surroundings. He believes that we have become accustomed to only look at the detail in nature once it has been framed and placed in a museum environment. Through this installation he persuades the viewer to take a closer look at the world around them," according to the exhibit introduction >>> Watch
