Scope and Content

The project series documents the installation "Energy FREE TREE" designed by Pettena and presented at Museion in Bozen, in 2017. The installation consists of a tower measuring eight meters high by four meters wide. The tower is built with parts, including doors, fenders, exhaust pipes, and lights, and is meant to represent a Christmas tree standing next to the museum entrance during Christmas. "The work was, in fact, meant to trigger ‘mental shortcircuits [sic]’ in order to obtain a reaction so as to introduce the subject of environmental awareness and the need of using recycled materials to reduce damages to the environment as much as possible." [1]

The project series contains a video, photographs of the installation, and two drawings.
