Last week we reported about the art project „The Tree Walker“, today we present an interview with Christoph Both-Asmus. During our Skype-conversation Christoph was sitting on a small patio of his apartment in Greece. Being there as an artist in residence, he prepared himself for his performance „One life to live“, to initiate a dialogue about art in public spaces with the people. In the interview he tells us whether or not he sometimes dreams of treehouses.
What, in your opinion, does a treehouse stand for?
Treehouses in general stand for a change of perspective. And when I see the Tree Walker project, it stands for many things. But especially for free thinking and imagination. You are just at a different place and have a different view from there. And you are directly connected with a living being. So I personally would like to build my treehouse in a way that the tree can grow on and on.
