Andy Wiener: Ancestor Trees (2022 Work in Progress)

About Ancestor Trees

In 2020/21, during lockdown Wiener regularly walked in his local woodland in Hertfordshire, England. He felt drawn to the mythology and mysticism of trees and the idea that, as humans our lives are fragile and flickering compared to the life cycle of trees and woodland. Using a projector he projected images from an archive of old family photographs onto old trees creating an integration of human and tree. Themes of life, death, memory, mortality and spirituality are explored.
