In the centre of Casula Powerhouse’s vast Turbine Hall stands a giant tree-like structure made from brightly coloured plastic tubes: a garish clash of organic forms and artificial materials. Over the course of WOW, the tree will grow. Not upwards, but outwards. Root-like tendrils will begin to snake around the Turbine Hall space matting around one another to form magical wave-like forms. More startling still, at periodic intervals absurd workers armed with leaf-blowers perform the structure as though it is a surreal pipe-organ come pan-pipe.
