The Bobbing Forest

The Bobbing Forest is an art piece created by designer Jeroen Everaert and floats on the Rijnhaven. The art piece was officially revealed on March 16th, which also happened to be the National Treeparty day. Everaert got inspired by the art piece ‘In Search of Habitus’ by Jorge Bakker: a water filled aquarium with floating model trees. He teamed up with Jorge Bakker to create a bigger version of this art piece. The trees on the water are not meant to be a statement. Everaert told RTV Rijnmond: “It’s an art piece and so it can be interpreted in a lot of ways. You can imagine it to be focused on durability, but to us it’s just a floating forest.”.
