Andersson is testing different ways to present the Life on a Leaf house for a public, which cannot access the actual artwork, the house itself. In Mänttä the project was presented by a direct web camera feed shown in a monitor on a wall, in Norway by a HD video showing the construction phase, projected on a screen. In Kuopio both these ways were used along with the scale model of the house, used in the design process. In Gdansk a video kiosk was built where three holes were cut in the walls through which you could see monitors showing the HD video from the construction, a HD video showing the interior of the house through glimpses from home video footage and a monitor showing the web cam from the outside of the house. In front of the video kiosk a table was built, which has the shape of the leaf shaped floor plan of the house. On the table pieces of left over materials used in the building of the house were randomly spread out on the surface. Laminated pictures from the building process were glued on the materials. The visitors could use these pieces to build their own construction on the table.
