wood, steel (work in progress: 2011 – ongoing)
Forks of branches collected in the forest are arranged in a Lindenmayer system and assembled into a tree sculpture. Branches and algorithm form a hybrid shape that oscillates between construction and autopoiesis and defines a haptic hyperreality.
A Lindenmeyer system is normally used in computer graphics to generate plants.
As a work in progress, I have been exhibiting varying installations of solitary trees and groups of trees since 2011.
