Create a Natural Environment

dimensions variable
mixed media (dead trees, latex house paint, wire)

This earth art piece was done in 2005 at a forest preserve in Shenyang, China for the International Horticultural Expo held in 2006. This project evolved from concept to installation over the course of a week in which the entire length of 10 dead trees (from roots to branch tips) were painted fuscia and suspended sideways throughout a small valley on either side of a stream and was designed to be view from a naturalized foot-bridge in the forest. Its materials, color, and composition addressed the irony of human desire to create a natural environment, when the point of nature is that it is not man-made.
