Installation

Sick-Amour is an art installation by Joel Tauber that celebrates a lonely and forlorn Tree in the middle of a giant parking lot in front of the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena (CA, USA). The installation is comprised of 12 videos and 15 interviews; and also includes, in its most complete form: a series of photographs, two giant earring sculptures for the tree, as well as golden leaf necklaces and fruitball earrings for Tauber and other tree lovers.
