A birch tree stands in a forest. Even upon close examination it does not seem out of place, although it is in fact a decoy made of steel, building foam, and pigments, which is surrounded by live, growing trees. The innocent observer does not notice anything out of the ordinary; those looking for the fake have the opportunity to lose themselves in the woods. The search for a single tree transforms the forest into an exhibition of trees.
