DOUGLAS  FIR

2022

An installation that invites you to smell the essential oils of Douglas Firs collected in the Wandelpark, Eindhoven in November 2022.

Douglas Firs were originally from the east coast of North America and in 1880 were brought to the Netherlands because of its economic value. However, along with Douglas Fir, other species attracted by its smell came to the Netherlands, thus changing its biodiversity Nowadays, only a small amount of trees found in the Netherlands originate from there, so this brings me to the question: How are we, humans changing the forest’s biodiversity by introducing different scents to them? What do we mean when we use the word “natural”?
