Baobab is an outdoor installation consisting of textile partitions under different pressure. The need for air need is provided by a cold-air fan. The trunk is held under constant pressure, while the pressure in the crown of the tree can be controlled by viewers who press their hands on certain parts of the trunk. As the pressure increases, the crown goes back to its original form.
 
The aim of the Baobab campaign is to attract people’s attention to their individual responsibility and respectively to collect messages from local communities and pass them on to the decision-makers of the world. The inflatable Baobab installation started its campaign tour in Central Europe in December 2008.
