Wood, 84” x 36” x 16” installed
Sylvan is a body of experiments investigating possibilities. The work was driven by a belief that the material life of a tree trunk can continue to grow despite it being found abandoned. To explore the iterations of a tree, the trunk was cut, the bark saved, the knobs shaved into wood chips and the sawdust made into paper. As an installation, Sylvan is a contemplative space to reflect on the vast possibilities of materials at every stage of their life.
