It was in 2014 when I started making this video. In Singapore I often see trees disappearing suddenly (then cut down) and then appearing somewhere again. They transport and move big trees from one place to another when the tree is in the way of construction. So I imagine that we can build trees like magic. I reverse the video of a tree being cut down so it looks like we are building a tree. In Singapore we want things to be very fast and efficient, even for nature. I wished I shoot the video differently. I want to shoot the tree again but it’s not possible.
I hope I could finish it someday, now I am waiting for a right tree.
