Mothers of the Forest
Mothers of the Forest takes its name and shape from the Grandidier’s Baobab tree, a strange and majestic native of Madagascar. The trees have long provided, from food and medicine to rope and thatch – some say they are a dwelling place for spirits. Now critically endangered, the trees stand as a reminder of our fragile relationship with home.
Artist | Output Arts
Output Arts is an art collective founded in 2009 making site-specific, interactive and participatory artworks and experiences.
Output Arts brings together traditional and modern artistic techniques to produce playful and poignant works that surprise and delight.
They work with a variety of physical and time-based material – sometimes researched from people or a place – combined with thoughtful and careful use of digital technology.
Past works have distilled the subtle movements of the wind and breeze, the experience of a passing storm and the subterranean movements of the earth itself, translating these massive natural phenomena into stunning animated light installations for intimate contemplation.
Output Arts is a partnership between artists Andy D'Cruz and Jonathan Hogg.
