The Reflecting Point Kollektiv for documenta fifteen is made of stacked wooden fences. These are used to protect young trees in mixed woodland. When erected, these 850 metres would be able to protect 5.000 young trees from bite damages whilst growing. After seven to eight years the tips of the trees are higher than the wild animals. The wooden fences, which having done their duty, decompose to humus.
