Artist Katie Paterson and architectural practice Zeller & Moye have created a public artwork in Bristol which marks the opening of a new building at the city’s university.
The University of Bristol has opened a Life Sciences building near the Royal Fort Gardens, where the installation, entitled Hollow, is based.
The installation is a collection of different trees, incorporating more than 10,000 unique species from across the world.
The university says Hollow aims to “tell the history of the planet” through showing tree specimens “in microcosm”.
Art production company Situations has helped to facilitate the project, and has created a digital platform called Treebank in association with BBC Four alongside it, which aims to encourage public participation in sharing ideas and memories on trees and the environment.
