The spatial light drawing "The Lonely Tree" was conceived for the exhibition held in the Diakoniekirche Weißfrauen. The work transfers historical notions of the "Tree of Life", which stood in paradise, into the present, thus enquiring upon the state of the "tree garden" or arboretum. The tree itself is the epitome for the cycle of life.
Dialogues and cross-references develop between the individual positions and the work’s sound sources.
