    Exhibition: Field: Science, Technology and Nature, 2004

    It’s A Hard Knock Life (For Us), 2004

    Aluminum, rubber, cherry blossom trees

    3 scaffolds, each 20' x 5' x 5'

    Carefully constructed aluminum and rubber scaffold structures appear to support three cherry trees while responding to their growth, evolving and changing form as the trees flower and gain foliage over the course of the exhibition. For this installation, a manmade, geometric structure is woven into an organic form creating a fragile symbiosis between the natural movement of the trees and the responsive alterations of the scaffolding.
