Our Tree

The OUR TREE installation, or exhibiting documentary, is a three-channel video projection and sound work. It is comprised of video, stills, music and sounds created, shot and recorded by welders, engineers, blacksmiths, volunteers, filmmakers, musicians and the general public brought together through the creation of The Blacksmiths’ Tree.



The three channels are played simultaneously for a full 12 minutes with the closing scene across all three channels featuring the completed tree filmed in time-lapse with The Milky Way overhead. The work can be either projected or replayed via three high definition screens.
