Inspired – Temporary Trees by Raw Colour
I came across the work of Raw Studio earlier on in the week while researching a branding job. I immediately fell in love with their wonderful portfolio of work. Based in Eindhove, Daniera ter Haar & Christoph Brach work on self initiated and commissioned projects, mixing the fields of graphic design and photography. One that caught my eye was ‘Temporary Trees – with Mkgk’, a project for Make a Forest and MU. ‘Trees are often regarded as objects and are removed according to the landscape plan ruthlessly. In the Netherlands trees typically reach only one tenth of the age that they could make.’ Using materials like paper, fabric and balloons, the studio shows that trees are anything but ‘static’, expressing how they represent life, movement, and transformation. Mesmerising.
