Fragments of Time installation reverses the cycle of life for trees
The circle of life for billions of trees is usually to grow, to be cut down, to end up as a book or newspaper. Colombian artist Miler Lagos reversed this fate in his wonderful installation Fragments of Time in which he presents 15 tree trunk-looking pieces that were made of piled and carved newspaper.
The artist’s approach is his ‘great interest in observing nature and in exploring the different phenomena that affect it as a result of cultural production’. One could almost call it a homage to the trees and the great sacrifice they make so that we can read our newspapers every Sunday morning.
