Maple Tree follows the journey of a tree through a quintessentially Dutch landscape. A rising land in falling water, a nature both native and foreign, a canvas unearthed by the hands of man. The land topo- graphically governed to fit the will of its inhabitants, with its shifting canals and lowland farms carving space into its skies, has long been revered for its beauty. The maple passes through this historical context and reflects on its position hauled by an SUV. It is the absence of choice and autonomy that drives the maple forward, drifting between various states of resistance in search of a new narrative want of democracy and voice.
