Imagine taking a woodland stroll in Western Europe. You are enjoying the crunch of leaves and the birdsong, when suddenly, you get the feeling you’re being watched. And it turns out…you are.
Being surrounded by grinning faces in the middle of the woods might be a little disconcerting at first, but they’ll soon win you over. The faces that are hiding in European woods were carefully painted on trees and stumps by an art collective called Zonenkinder (which means “Zone Kids”). The work is visible throughout France, Denmark and Germany. The “Tree Project” has been an ongoing effort since 2006.
