Would you have thought that these trees are meant to rotate?

For this year’s biennial arts festival in Liverpool, UK, the guys responsible for the Blur Building, Diller, Scofidio and Renfro, are going to introduce the visitors to their “Arbores Laetae” installation, also known as the Joyful Trees. Yes, these three trees in the middle of other 17 trees are the only ones moving confusing all those passing by.

I know the festival is all about the contemporan art and the weird, but I’ll have to be honest that I’d wish these guys would have come up with a motto or a slogan for their rotating trees, that would determine people to go home, buy a tree and put it in the ground for the many years to come.
