by Pomona Zipser creates a space and a structure from which to contemplate and observe the ever-changing forest. Berlin-based Zipser’s sculpture has been handcrafted from sweet chestnut felled from the site of the Trail and Zipser has collaborated with local artists and craftsmen to make the sculpture at Tan House Farm in Newland. The sculpture was then transported to the site to be installed. It makes a thought-provoking and visual connection to the surrounding environment, playing with density, dimensions and colour.
