Singing Ringing tree by Tonkin Liu design

Friday, July 11, 2008

From Burnley the tree's profile will be visible on the horizon, appearing and disappearing in the mist.

The tree is constructed of stacked pipes of varying lengths. As the wind passes different length pipes in different layers, the tree sings different chords.

Each time you sit under the shelter of the tree you will hear a different song.

This installation wins best land art competition as the architect used something simple (the pipes) to create an art which will sings depend on the wind direction.
