If all the forests around your home have been cut down, why not just turn your living room into a forest if you want to enjoy the green? That's what they're doing in Los Angeles.
At least, that's what artists Christy McCaffrey and Sara Newey did, turning the Machine Project gallery space into a woodland forest that will flourish for the entire month of April.

They built it using wood, ropes, tape, glue, and a healthy dose of actual tree trunks and soil. Throughout the month, they'll be holding events in the indoor forest, including lectures on bigfoot and elves, as well as screenings of spooky vampire movies.
