For the 100-metre high air space of the Gasometer, Wolfgang Volz created the 40-metre high sculpture “Rain forest tree”. The monumental sculpture, its fascinating sound and light design will transform the Gasometer into a “Cathedral of Nature”. In it stands this “Tree of Life”, as a symbol of the beauty, fertility and vulnerability of the eternal cycle of nature. With “Magic Places”, Oberhausen’s Gasometer ends the exhibition trilogy about the beauty and sublimeness of the Earth which started with “The Eye in the Sky” and “Out of this World - Wonders of the Solar System” and has so far been visited by more than 1.2 million people.
