"The Fantastic Tree is the Norwegian Forest Museum’s new exhibition displaying the photosynthesis and the life, death and history of the tree. By using complicated light effects, we are able to recreate the photosynthesis. Understanding the photosynthesis is the beginning of understanding both the carbon sequestration, the carbon cycle, and later the forests’ role in a climate context. To demonstrate how spectacular the photosynthesis really is, we have made a 9 meter long glowing acrylic wall, displaying an incision of a leaf. In the middle of the exhibition stands a 7,5 meter tall sculpture of a tree, made of 10 kilometers of aluminum pipes – this is The Fantastic Tree." - Norsk Skogmuseum
