Tilting Forest is an interactive installation by Snarkitecture where visitors are invited to explore a landscape of tilting cones.
As visitors engage with the cones, they slowly tilt and sway, transforming the environment into a living forest. Fallen cones serve as moveable, stackable seating while spectators on the floors above are presented with a shifting field that rises through the atrium.
The forest becomes a bobbing, swaying landscape that activates a collective experience of color and play.
Snarkitecture is a New York-based collaborative design practice established to investigate the boundaries between disciplines.
The name is drawn from Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of The Snark, a poem describing the “impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an inconceivable creature”.
In its search for the unknown, Snarkitecture creates work that includes large-scale projects, installations and objects.
Snarkitecture’s work focuses on the reinterpretation of everyday materials, structures, and programs to new and imaginative effect.
With a conceptual approach centered on the importance of experience, the studio creates unexpected and memorable moments that invite people to explore and engage with their surroundings.
