Tree Project

Article text
"I am now beginning a long term project to investigate the life cycle of trees around several areas near to where I live.

One of the main things I have learnt through pursuing this form of art is the amount we miss from day to day. How what is in front of us all the time just glances off our conciousness without leaving much of an impression. We think we are really switched on but it is an illusion and in fact we miss so much.

By studying trees I intend to pick one organism to help me become more aware of what is in our environment. And already, although I have just started, I have found there is a much greater diversity than I expected and that there are many more specimens of particular varieties than I ever thought I would find."
