I saw a large uprooted oak in a park. It lay as if sleeping on a gently sloping grass-covered hill. When I returned a few days later, the tree had disappeared. In its place remained a scar, a mound of raw earth. I envisioned a new tree growing on this mound. In that moment The Global Tree Project clicked into place. I saw a thread running through all my work, one that reopens our connection with trees, to be whole, and to have a new vision through them, emphasizing the interconnectedness of all life. Through site-specific installations throughout the world I work with identifiable imagery to encourage audiences to encounter aspects of nature in a new way. Unlike a tree in the forest surrounded by other trees and plants, these trees are given a singular, sculptural presence. By taking a tree out of its natural context I invite viewers to experience nature in a novel, more contemplative way.
