About

Tree of Knowledge @ Orticolario 2019 - Creative Spaces.

Designed by Nomad Studio, Tree of Knowledge is a temporary installation on axis with Villa Erba, at Lake Como in Italy, hosted by Orticolario 2019 - Creative Spaces International Competition. The concept that shapes the installation is a reflection about the journeys that humanity has accomplished and their impact on our culture, specifically on our relationship with plants. Tree of Knowledge poses a question: do we know where our food is coming from?

An empty apple, referencing to an empty Tree of Knowledge, has been placed on a monumental bed of lemons to entice visitors to instantaneously engage with the installation in a blissful state of mind. While the dominant yellow and the playful lemon carpet has a bright joyful connotation, people will also be standing in front of an empty apple surrounded by a field of yellow. The installation plays with the duality of the color yellow, which is both, a joyful color and the color used to alert us, to confront the visitors with the contradiction and spark a personal journey to find their own answers.
