For the new 16 Chestnut development in Downtown Denver, Denver based artist David Zimmer created Echo an outdoor installation that is an abstraction of a majestic tree moving in the wind. The image is broken up onto 13 LED panels and reconstructed in a collage style throughout the space. The work evokes the feeling of being in nature, in contrast to its concrete and glass surroundings. The subject matter is a giant oak tree on the outskirts of Denver that David Zimmer has been filming intermittently over the last 10 years. The name Echo is meant to evoke the memories that have taken place under and around the tree over the past many years.
