SPECTACULAIRES - THE GREAT PLATANUS
The Great Platanus, 2023
Every tree on earth is a living ecosystem that needs water and light. For the Brixen Water Light Festival, the trunk of the great plane tree will be exposed and, thanks to a meticulous projection, will reveal its rising sap at the bark, trickle with a thousand drops in the spring, parade in multicoloured clothes as a tribute to the autumn and to the colours of the sky, and become a tree of ice when it freezes like a stone. Its branches, dressed in light like a protective umbrella, attract a winged fauna which, with the complicity of the valley winds, will produce a natural soundtrack according to the seasons.
For passers-by coming from the town centre, smiling faces will appear superimposed on the foliage and thus welcome visitors.
