Even if you are not particularly interested in art: this wood installation in the woods near Bad Belzig is simply exciting and impressive. Two large, cube-shaped constructions seem to slowly sink into the ground between the trees. The pines just continue to grow through the cubes.

In the border area of a large pine forest, two cube-shaped structures made of unpolished wooden beams are partially sunk in the ground. You are in an inclined position and make an unreal impression.
The size of the cubes roughly describes the volume of small wooden houses that can be found in the region.
Next to and in the two tilting figures grow the vertical trunks of the pines, so that a penetration of the natural and the artificial pine space takes place.
The skew of the cube structures also creates the impression of a movement of sinking, or emergence.
This is the dialogue between the fate of the pines and the beams, "... I am what you will be ..." similar to a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale.
The installation refers to the mutual appropriation of space through nature and architecture and attempts to visualize this tension.
