On the outskirts of Oberursel, in the midst of intensive industrial agriculture, stands the ruin of a 400-year-old winter linden tree, which was destroyed by environmental influences. As an art project, this tree rudiment was framed by us with a cube of 800cm edge length. If you like: To look at as a still life, or as a memento mori. The so-called deadwood hosts innumerable micro-organisms and is therefore to be seen as a kind of reservoir and memory of nature, sculpturally staged and protected by the white cube.
