Entry Title: "Readymade Trees"
Name: Helena Cuculić , Croatia
Category and Expertise: Still Life, Non-Professional


Entry Description: A series of photographs created as a contribution to Make a Forest project: a global, collaborative art and design project that raises awareness to protect forests. My idea was to find something that had a shape similar to a tree, so I used broccoli and cauliflower. I had put them on a mirror and with sunlight created "trees" made of light and shadow. In nature there are no two identical trees. Also, the shape of a projected tree is never the same: it changes depending on the intensity of light, angle and distance from the area where it is projected.
