The contrast between urban and rural landscape, between a human and a machine which can turn into a tool of bad conduct in human hands and a contrast between a peaceful tree and global problems and economic growth. All these are the creative principles behind the light object The Machine which connects architecture with nature and a human with a powerful machine. The object is a critical metaphor and a romanticizing gesture. It points to human greed which causes excessive logging and deforestation. The installation is, however, situated in the vestibule of the Industrial Palace of Výstaviště Praha, which is a symbol of business, industry and international trade fairs. As a result, the artwork becomes an irony, cruelly cynical and inherently ambivalent. The contrast of the natural and the human remains ever-present. The artist treats the topic of ecology minimalistically, and the issue of logging is symbolically stopped in space and time. The Machine leaves a powerful visual impression, but it also issues a warning and reminds us how important and irreplaceable forests are to our planet.
