ups and downs II is a kinetic Installation, that was part of the solo exhibition: Transforming Landscapes 1.
It is made of a fir tree, (wooden-) gear, rope, pulleys and a rotary motor.
It is the continue of a work we did in a cutted forest area in Estonia in 2022 at Wilbits, MAAJAAM.
With the steady and unnatural up and down movement, we want to point out the worldwide intervention of humans in a natural cycle, which opposes with their own economically motivation and are questioning this cycle and ask whether the forest manipulated by humans is still an attractive functioning habitat and what consequences result from it in the long term.
