As part of the Innovation Room the client required the adjacent walls within the room to be soundproofed. The total size of the wall and art work were L:9100mm x H:3500mm. The initial design brief was to incorporate a forest scene into the art work.
The finished art work incorporates a large maple tree with its branches hovering over the tall backed sofa. Graphic wind brushes scatter the fractured hexagons and transmit them onto the pine trees like parasitic elements. The silhouettes of the parasite ridden pine trees gradually fade back into healthy trees. The diffuse forest backdrop, which represents serenity, fades into a subtle water colour background. The art work in its whole symbolises how easily affected humanity is by their surroundings. How effortlessly parasites, like social media or working environments, slowly absorbs you, and the realisation of how you desperately urge to become free and independent from those parasites. A healthy balance should be had; the tall standing tree, half silhouette to represent the parasites we need in order to maintain how our surroundings influence us, and the branches stretches for the light reflects our true inner core which represent freedom and happiness.
