Traces

 

Approx. 2,200 factory off-cuts, reclining tree; 90 units; dimensions variable

 

This site-specific collaboration between the artist and the general public mimics the shape of a reclining tree. The multiple 'fossil' like units are an exploration of the notion of memory and they are used as a metaphor for the regeneration of life.
