2nd prize: „Live between live“ by Burkhart Uliczka (Germany)

In a cleared section of forest not far from the wind turbine, young willow trees unfold as a small artificial protection. The willows are prepared with shimmering, blank metal spheres, in which the forest, the willows themselves but also the observer is reflected. These spheres are anchored in the willows in such a way that they grow into a unity with the tree and the filigree willow leaves are reflected in the bare outer skin of the spheres, which gives this work a certain magic.
Nature and artificial intervention interweave in this work to form a harmonious unity.
