Humannature: Craig Walsh’s Video Projections Transform Trees into Spooky Glowing Faces

Glowing human faces reveal themselves at night in Australian artist Craig Walsh's digital installations. Spooky at first glance, Humannature is a temporary intervention projected onto trees to create a glowing nighttime spectacle as Walsh's pre-recorded videos develop a new and curious texture when presented against nature.
Australia-based artist Craig Walsh has been projecting human faces onto trees across the globe, from Havana to Japan’s Fuji Rock, London’s  Hyde Park , Adelaide and Singapore, to name a few. Projecting a flat image on a living voluminous tree adds a new dimension to his imagery. A site-specific project,  this great moving image installation pays homage to humans and nature at the same time.
Made by projecting computer-manipulated portraits or pre-recorded videos, the faces are perceived like giant holograms. But sometimes the videos are live, allowing people to talk to the faces, or trees! (see the video above). Creating little impact on the environment but a long-lasting impression on the audience, Hummanature make trees  talk.
