‘In Between’

Sergels torg is home to one of Stockholm’s main squares and a busy train station. It seems like a perfectly normal place, that is, until you notice a flattened birch tree smushed between two pieces of glass.

Rest assured, this isn’t a real tree in peril. Swedish artist Ronald Persson created this tree, together with a second one, to liven up the station. The lifelike trees, which sprout from what look like flattened wheelbarrows, are made of silicon.
