A Book of Trees

Exhibitions

Ink and brush paintings on paper, VR short film, artist book

The exhibition combines two different stories for looking at trees. The first is a technical exploration of how a machine learning system struggles to produce the three-dimensional shape of a tree, and how observing this process can give us an opportunity to reflect upon new computational paradigms that are reshaping our future. The second is a reflection on the history of imported trees in Hong Kong and how an Australian artist finds himself surrounded by the trees of his childhood.
