Van Aken said that he believes that the trees are a source of inspiration that could change the perspective of the people who look at them:

“First and foremost I see the tree as an artwork. I want the tree to interrupt and transform the everyday. When the tree unexpectedly blossoms in different colours, or you see these kinds of fruit hanging from its branches, it not only changes the way you look at it, but it changes the way you perceive [things] in general.”
