Amongst the Trees

Being lost in my inspiration for the project I decided to go and spent some time with the topic of my interest; trees. In this first observation I realised that I was trying very hard to understand them. To identify their different personalities, to understand how they reacted on the environment and to make clear if they were passive or active beings. None of these questions I found an answer to. If only they could send us some more messages/information than this..

It is interesting on these pictures how the trees seems as if they are reaching out to each other, as if they want contact but also avoiding each other. What seems to happen on the picture, does happen underground, they communicate with each other using their roots. Sending each other messages and helping each other in case of need.
