Brainforest

Brainforest is the name of a piece by Gerda Steiner & Jorg Lenzlinger but I think it’s also a great way of describing the style that all of their work has. Steiner was originally a wall painter and Lenzlinger was creating stalactite-like forms when they joined forces in 1997. The amount of detail in their large scale installations is staggering. You can tell how much I love their work by the number of images I have included in this post.

    wow. that’s so scary. I had a designproject in school and was going to make a miniature of this installation, only I didn’t know this even existed. the project was canceled though.
    Anyway, it’s beautiful

    I saw their piece in a church in the Venice Biennale a few years ago. It is truly a thing of beauty in the flesh, a really relaxing experience.

    im new to this website and just saw these images. I would die to see any of them in person. Does anyone know when these were done? if they’re still up and if they will ever do it again. Im going to Europe this summer and would beyond thrilled to see them. I think they are the most amazing thing I have ever seen
