Gallery: “A Path in the Forest” by Tetsuo Kondo is a Floating Woodland ...

 
Tallinn is the 2011 European Capital of Culture

There’s something magical about the forest, but people often need a little help seeing these natural monuments in a different light. Like these gorgeous giant wind chimes, A Path in the Forest is designed to shift how people experience the heavily-wooded Kadriorg park.

By winding the artificial trail in and amongst the old-growth forest, gradually working its way up into the canopy, the designers gave people get a more intimate view of the leaves and bark previously only seen from below. The path, somewhat akin to a scribble in its loose form, is supported by a steel tube attached to the tree trunks. This absence of obvious structural support definitely reinforces the feeling that one is floating amidst the trees, creating a leafy exploration that no one is likely to forget. If you’re in Tallinn before 22 October, 2011, be sure to drop by before the installation is removed.
