The Cell Tree

The Cell Tree explores the phenomena of tree_hoverycellular towers disguised as trees. Using the recent success of Peter Wohlleben’s The Hidden Life of Trees to show how people already venerate the tree as an ideal communicator, the publication employs tree diagrams, Judeo-Christian mythology, and the visual language of Greenpeace to display the tree as a discrete node within a larger matrix of data exchange.
