Photographer Azuma Makoto creates a floating bonsai in an Abandonded Power Plant.
Originally built in the 1920’s, this coal plant was operational for almost a century. It is located in Belgium, close to Brussels. Its cooling tower is still in good condition, though overgrown with weeds and moss. A spectacular location for creative artists and photographers, like Azuma.
The Bonsai tree on display (a pine) is bare rooted, a statement by the artist about our human desire to control energy. Rest assured, unlike his previous displays (think; Bonsai in Space, and Frozen Bonsai) this time he repotted the tree after the shoot. The tree is doing fine.
