Ghost Forest in the Square

I managed to catch the last day of Angela Palmer’s Ghost Forest exhibition in Trafalgar Square before it was shipped off to Copenhagen. Giant tree stumps from a commercially-logged rainforest in Ghana were set up in an attempt to highlight the issue of deforestation. Their roots stretched, like gnarled fingers toward the National Gallery, Big Ben, St. Martin in the Fields. In real life, they would have reached so high into the sky that they would have been about even with the height of Nelson’s Column.

The Telegraph posted a short clip that shows it off pretty well.

Here are a few photos I took last weekend.
