Leaves Among Thorns – Stirling

A colourful forest of revolving trees, presenting tales of the Brothers Grimm.

Leaves Among Thorns  – Presented at the MacRobert Arts Centre, Stirling.

The colourful walk-through installation consisted of a woodland wander through a forest of revolving trees with a continuously changing collage of images inspired by the resonant stories of the Brothers Grimm. First launched in 1994, each tree depicted a different tale in a playful and surprising way.
