    A pine tree in the Park has been replicated in every detail. The trunk and branches are fashioned out of steel, and the leaves are cut vinyl, painted green. This synthetic tree is placed alongside its original, mimicking its vibrance, scale, and orientation with precision. As an inorganic form, however, the tree's inauthenticity becomes more apparent in winter, when it is contrasted with the bare trees around it. <PREVIOUS | NEXT>
