The idea of a tree - Winner at DMY

Austrian duo Mischer’Traxler won one of this year’s DMY awards last week in Berlin.
The idea of a tree is an autonomous, mechanical production process, which is a hybrid combination of natural input and mechanical process. It involves the translation of natural inputs through a mechanical apparatus in order to create one object a day. The recorder is totally dependent on sun light. Driven by solar energy, it reacts and incorporates the light intensity into an object.
The outcoming object reflects the various sunshine conditions that occur during a day. Like a tree the object becomes a three dimensional recording of its process and time of creation. For better understanding of the concept see the movie.
