Cambodian Trees is a digital projection work by French artist Clement Briend who traveled to
photograph these sculptural representations of deities and spirits from
Cambodian culture overlaid on trees in several urban areas. Of the
series Briend says: Cambodia
It’s a beautiful surprise when the projected spirits awaken and reveal themselves at night as though they are made of the towering trees themselves. The photographic light installations echo the spirituality of the few sprouts of nature in the predominantly urban landscapes. It is a visual imagining of the divine figures that inhabit the world, as seen through an environmentally aware spiritual eye.
Though I’m generally not a fan of digital projection, I really enjoy Briend’s utilization of tree branches to lend volume to the photographs of sculptures, in essence giving them life.
