White Forest Project

Oriano Galloni's avatar Oriano Galloni

I propose to install a sculpture called White Tree. White Tree is a 30’ tall marble and stainless steel sculpture inspired by the classical concept of Greek purity. The sculpture is part of a larger public art project called the White Forest project which is designed to symbolize a powerful, unifying force that is guarding humanity and protecting the planet. The project is comprised of an unlimited number of White Trees placed in far flung and unusual places around the world, like giant transmitters uniting various points around the planet. The White Trees derive from a body of my work known as Silent Souls. The Silent Souls were inspired by a walk in a forest, where I felt surrounded by beautiful, ethereal presences among the trees. Since that time, I have been trying to give physical form to the sensations I felt, to create sculptures that serve as points of communication between our physical and spiritual beings.
