Holzfabrik/Wood Factory (Oil on canvas, 124x88cm, 2008)

This experimental wood factory, code named “Thomson&Co”, is located  in northern China, 150 km east of the capital. It produces synthetic trees and constitutes a major effort, paid for in part by international trusts, in part by the Chinese government, to combat global warming.

Its future purpose: located on other planets, it will be critical in producing an artificial sustainable atmosphere. (c) 2017 by Torsten Slama
