Ghost Forest, Trafalgar square, London

Pretty surreal view in London's Trafalgar square this week (ends Sunday 22 November).

This is a project by Angela Palmer - Ghost Forest Art Project - "to raise public awareness of the connections between deforestation and climate change. It involves taking a series of 10 rainforest tree stumps, most with their buttress roots still attached, from a regulated, commercially logged tropical rainforest in Ghana."

The tree stumps - the installation of “ghost forest” - will then move to Copenhagen (7-18 December 2009) to coincide with the UN Cop15 Climate Change Conference in December.
