20130406-120240tree-1 tree-3A concept (soon to be put into production) sculptural chandelier from Hilden and Diaz entitled Forms In Nature, inspired by a genealogical ‘tree of life’ created by the German biologist and philosopher Ernst Haeckel.

…the roots are those elements of the forest that are the most visible. Thereby the sculpture is not only mirrored, but also turned upside down in Hilden & Diaz’ artwork. […] The shadows engulfs the room and transforms the walls into unruly shadows of branches, bushes and gnarled trees. Mirrorings are thrown out upon the walls and ceilings and provide weak Rorschach-like hints of faces, life and flow of consciousness. Dimming the lights transforms the installation and one senses a weak fire burning deep in the center of the forest.

Steady on.
