One fir tree in a forest is turning around. The natural order of things seems to be disturbed. An observer starts switching in his mind between a picture of landscape and a scene of life. STILLEVEN could also be considered as ‘vanitas’, a video painting, in which a natural forest surrounding is accompanied by symbolic reminder of life’s impermanence.
