At first glance, theses photographs from Robert Voit’s series “New Trees” seem to show us everyday foliage and plants, set apart only by their oversized proportions. But on closer inspection you can see that these are in fact cell phone towers camouflaged to blend in with both urban and rural surroundings. Voit’s “New Trees” are really the perfect intersection of the natural world and technology that we keep inserting into it. I love these images and can see a HUGE print in your Palm Spring mid-century modern getaway.
Robert Voit: ‘New Trees’ and ‘The Alphabet of New Plants’ opens tonight at ClampArt and runs through November 15 in New York.
