Mesmerizing Art Uses Trees as Canvas

Craig Walsh 'Emergence' Series
City of Sydney

Craig Walsh created an amazing exhibition for the Art & About festival in Sydney, utilizing images projected onto trees to create an impressive three-dimensional illusion of the faces of activists.

For the recent Art & About festival, Australian artist Craig Walsh created a series of haunting 3D projections to illuminate the trees of Sydney's Hyde Park South. "I am interested in representing histories in a space, which don't normally get represented in the monuments," Walsh wrote about the project on Art&About's website. Scroll down for more images.

Walsh's project, entitled "Emergence," involves a series of ghostly, colorful projections of activists' faces on nearby trees. The installation pays homage to Hyde Park's own history as a social destination for protest. Walsh's other work with projections also subvert traditional space, echoing Krzysztof Wodiczko's work.
