Alien like cocoons in the forest made of Willow branches.
Will Beckers aka The Willowman
Land Art artist Will Beckers commissioned by the Floriade 2012 creates a completely unique natural environment called The Willowman project in the forests of the Floriade. This unique project is brought to life by the Willowman’s presence himself.
This Land Art project is more than just an artwork, it is a living environment that shows how we can go to a back to a basic existence, and live by nature’s natural cycle - cradle to cradle. During the project artist Will Beckers lives and works on location in his own installation. He lives in the tree huts he has created as an architect of nature.
It is the visitor’s interaction with his surroundings that brings the installation to life. The children who visit the project will help the artist to create another enormous work which will grow and develop during the Floriade. The Willowman’s domain will be expanded and every child visiting the Floriade can be a part of this.
