Telescore Project Opening Exhibition
Telescore Project is a world-wide collaborative art project. It aims to familiarise the viewers with the cross-species interaction and coexistence of trees and humans. Specific trees, and their area of origin, are presented by creating music derived from the tree cross-sections, and working with performance artist to record short films inspired by the local culture and the tree significant to the given area. The project was created by the Japanese artist Iyamari in the spring of 2016.
Creating music and art videos inspired by a given species of tree and the local area's culture, for displaying them as a collection of ‘relationships of trees and humans in the world'.
Trees and humans have been sharing the environment for a long time. There are trees with symbolic meaning in almost every area in every land. Additionally, there are particular cultural traditions which have flourished around the use of these trees. This shows us how human cultures are affected by land and environment. Our project tries to bring them together and present the ‘relationship of the tree and human'.
