Landscape as Muse

Season Three - Episode 29

Autumn with Reinhard Reitzenstein
Home to over 1,050 plant species, including at least 34 species of trees, the Haliburton reserve is 60,000 acres of privately managed forest in central Ontario. After a year of major storms and several tornados, areas of the forest have been destroyed. Inspired by the massive fallen trees and upturned root balls, Reinhard Reitzenstein creates large-scale installations amongst the destruction. His work is a comment on how we are managing our forests, and our world.
