ArtWay meditation: The Cloud Tree

This week's ArtWay meditation features 'a remarkable installation by the young Dutch artist Harmke Koning' which can be found in Borne, a village in the Netherlands:

'This work, titled Cloud Tree, is an object of a few meters high, transparent and light, that stands in the middle of a pond ... The drop shapes of Cloud Tree are reflected by the water, while they merge with the blue of the firmament and the woolly white clouds. A fusion of below and above.'

Harmke Koning develops artworks that give new meaning to a landscape, building or location. She studied at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Her graduation project was shown in the Central Museum in Utrecht. This video installation with animation was at the same time a climb and play object for children. She has developed several large installations for festivals. For the past six years artworks for the public space has been her main focus. She also develops creative workshops for elementary and secondary schools.
