Twenty-four birches are each fitted with a vibrating motor that can be activated from a distance. The vibration makes it possible to control the shaking of the the leaf canopy and generates noise fields that surround the visitor.

Trees, apparently passive bystanders in our everyday surroundings, are used to create a natural – or even supernatural – experience.
