tree/clay installation 2

Collaboration with Nicole Schoepflin.

 

A single tree is suspended over a dried clay circle. The tree was planted in a residential yard by a landscaping company and died after transplant, leaving visibly restricted roots and branches. The painted clay is topped with various materials collected from nature, arranged as a 'blessing' of the things that fall from trees, fallen trees and the loss of our ecosystems. Bird sounds come from a nest in the tree.
