The Zadok Ben-David steel installations place the durable sculptures squarely in nature. The UK-based artist mimics the trees and flowers that he comes into contact with via the pieces, all of which are different from one another in size, shape and botanic variation. What remains consistent however is their calculated connection to the landscapes.

These metallic flowers and trees are representative of a current day dilemma. Ben-David is preoccupied with the exploitation of nature, made evident here in the intersection he has created here between wildlife and man-made artwork. The installation's missions statement sums up these themes concisely, "This installation reflects [Ben-David's] on-going engagement with the humanization of nature as a mean to express emotion."
