Thomas Dambo is here! Firstly, I create gigantic creature from recycled material. Then I hide these sculptures in forests. The main aim of doing this is to take people out of superficial technological world and to make them walk toward nature again. This technology has taken us far away from nature and natural resources.
During my childhood, I used to fantasized fairy tales. I used to live in my own self made magical, supernatural world. As I grow up, I started to write stories, compose rap and made sculptures. I made my own world where my stories can be listened. In my recent project, I have integrated all of my creation. Stories, recycling, raping, sculpturing all in one box.
The project was named as “The 7 Trolls and The Magical Tower.” Giant is hidden in the forest which is made up of recycled material. It seems confusing but video will depict it all.
Facts about my project are as follow:
- The height of the 7 trolls ranges from 7 to 18 meters (23 to 59 feet). The tower is 17 meters (56 feet).
- It took me and my crew of 15 people around 25 weeks to build.
- The wood is mainly old shelves from a supermarket, pallets, and branches from fallen trees.
- It is located in a Belgian forest.
