Edition Daniel Roth: Ofen, 2009Daniel Roth creates expansive installations with complex narratives that deal with the relationship between humans and nature in literature and science. Using sculpture, drawing, photography or film Roth reflects and fictionalized specific places or subjects as the forest or traveling. To produce his works Roth often uses natural materials and transforms them consuming. He undid the individual bovine platelets of a tree trunk and mounts it as a cape reassembled, or he transformed animal skins in amorphous wall objects. A recurring topos is the hidden mental space as well as an underground architecture. The London underground water system was the starting point of his narrative reference systems such as the emergence of Amsterdam, which was built on the Black Forest firs, the home of the artist. The ECHTWALD Special Edition is available from Daniel Roth, entitled “stove”. In fact, smoke emerges from the wooden and metal made furniture-like object. But where the smoke comes from remains unclear.
The object oscillates as between a functional object and a poetic metaphor of artistic reflection of activation and implementation of thought itself. Thus the oven is also a self-portrait of the artist.

Edition Tue Greenfort: Forest Canopy Projekt, 2009At the beginning of the Danish artist Tue Greenfort who is based in Berlin, is the complex concept of nature. Based on the location where he displays, Greenfort creates complex references between the ecological system of nature and the art system. For instance, he convinced the Witte de Withstraat in Rotterdam, where he had an exhibition, to take an environmentally friendly electricity supplier for the duration of his exhibition at this place. Moreover he presented at documenta 13 a comprehensive archive about the relationship between human being and animal, which was inspired by the feminist Donna Haraway.
For ECHTWALD Tue Greenfort designed a tree house as a functional unit. This idea is based on the using of tree houses and high cable cars for scientific work in the treetops of the rain forest in Costa Rica. Also in this case, as with all the functional units, first the feasibility has to be proofed. Directly related is his already developed and real existing edition for ECHTWALD: The Forest Canopy Project is luxury equipment for a high cable car. With this equipment the tree house is accessible with an additional platform.
