Cubes & Trees

fullsizerender-15Trees // Ai Weiwei

Cubes and trees. What an interesting combination. What does it even mean? Well, they are each a series by artist Ai Weiwei and can be seen at Heong Gallery in Cambridge’s Downing College. Ai Weiwei’s trees are created by combining existing real tree branches together with large nuts and bolts. For his cubes, the ones on view are composed of four different materials: wood, crystal and tea. What do you prefer? Cubes or trees?
