the alternative christmas tree project hopes to convince everybody that cutting a healthy tree only to throw it after two weeks is neither kind or cool. please make your own trees! have fun recycling, upcycling, improvising. there are no limits to what you can do. if you have kids, even better! they will cherish the memory of making a “tree” with their family, each year different and better. we will show you how easy it is to make a “tree” and i can’t wait to see what you come up with. enjoy your holidays!
anamaria pravicencu is piatra neamt-born and bucharest-based. but between residing in these two cities, she graduated from ecole nationale superieure de beaux arts in paris. and then, she had a lvmh scholarship at the school of the art institute of chicago. currently, together with octav avramescu, she runs the only comics book shop in town. also, a series of concerts and happenings of experimental music. but, beyond all the worldly references, ana is a good friend.
this is the introduction of her girly “tree”:
“my christmas tree is neither cosy, homey or environmentally responsible, but in a constant urge to go from a place to another, running and changing all the time. my christmas tree is vain and a bit impertinent, and what it leaves after its passing is the sound of the heels, fading. i wish you a chic christmas!”
her tree is perfect for us girls. just grab a few pairs of heels and match them up. instead of wishing for more shoes, you will realize you have plenty already and you will start daydreaming about featuring them in chic winter time scenarios.
thank you, ana!
