2. MetroTech’s Miniature Redwood Forest
In 2016, conceptual artist Spencer Finch created a to-scale replica of 4,000 redwood trees, which he placed in Downtown Brooklyn’s Metrotech area. The installation, called “Lost Man’s Creek,” was developed for Brooklyn’s Public Art Fund.
The installation is a 1:100 scale replica in miniature of a 790-acre redwood forest in Redwood National Park. Finch will be cutting the trees to maintain their proportions each year, keeping them at about one to four feet tall. The trees will be on display through March 2018.
