|4 Art Sculpture: The End of Trees
[Steel and print; 2.5 ft tall] 06/2003
This project is a demonstration of the consequences of unchecked destruction of the world's forests. The timeline in the background describes the history of trees from the first recorded tree to the last destroyed fictional tree.
Steel was the perfect medium for this project because of the ability to demonstrate the terrible coldness and sterility of such a bleak situation. The tree's gnarly and indelicate qualities were sculpted to convey the darkness of this dystopia.
