The Tree of Life: A Journey Through the Underworld in London, United Kingdom by Urban Brew

Visitors to the 2010 Bloomsbury Festival were invited to contribute to the evolving Tree of Life installation produced by Urban Brew. Produced to promote The Book of the Dead exhibition at the British Museum, Urban Brew interpreted the Egyptian Tree of Life into a site specific installation that attracted over 4,000 people. The installation reflected the importance the Ancient Egyptians attached to the ideas of life and death and invited the public to contribute by writing their name onto a paper bird, which would then be hung up to create a sea of flying birds overhead. The underworld was further explored in a series of soundscapes throughout the installation, produced by composer Jonathan Rousseau.
