Invasive Species

Photographer Dillon Marsh’s Invasive Species – the wonderful art of tree cellphone towers: »In 1996 a palm tree appeared almost overnight in a suburb of Cape Town. This was supposedly the world’s first ever disguised cell phone tower. Since then these trees have spread across the city, South Africa and the rest of the world. „Invasive Species“ explores the relationship between the environment and the disguised towers of Cape Town and its surrounds.«

What does oil on canvas look like?

The life-sized LEGO forest

The legendary LEGO pine trees and flowers are currently part of an exhibition in the Australian outback. However, life-sized in a unique reserve called »Living Desert« in Broken Hill. The reason is that LEGO is celebrating 50 years in Australia. The impressive installation will now remain in Broken Hill’s red dust plains and blue skies of far-western NSW until July 12.
