‘spring’ consists of a structure, measuring 8 meters in width by 5 meters in length and 2 meters tall, composed of latticed piano wire and unto which images depicting ‘the life-force that inhabits the forest’ will be projected. ‘spring’ makes use of WUX400 installation projectors with liquid crystal on silicon technology (LCOS) to display the images, which were taken with canon EOS 7D digital SLR cameras.
