“Memory Rings: The Life and Times of the World’s Oldest Living Tree” is a very early work-in-progress. This piece is a part of a greater trilogy that includes “69˚S.” united by ecological and environmental threads of narrative and research. The title refers to both the resonance and impact of 4784 years of a living being and the poetry of age shown through Dendrochronology, or aging using the rings at a trees core. The memory of who we have been, the growth of the tree, and the changing environment are all represented with cycles and circles. The tree is a living record of everything that has transpired during its history as it stands in mute testimony of civilization’s encroachment.
