Antti Laitinen’s commissioned work Salix Caprea unveiled at the Kiiru School in Somero, Finland in February 2018.

The artwork consists of a willow tree that has been cut down from Laitinen’s own yard and installed at the school’s main stairway.

With the help of over 10.000 staples, the 8.5 meter tall tree has been molded into a two-dimensional shape,

resembling a plant pressed between the pages of a herbarium.
