Marie-Luise Klotz, Christopher Lin, Erika Osborne, Leah Wilson
For our May Tree Talk, we heard from four ecoartspace artists who shared their ideas and artworks about trees and forests. Marie-Luise Klotz presented her project, “Connected Earth,” which considers how nature is deeply connected forming a single entity that is whole in and of itself. Christopher Lin discussed empathy, symbiosis, maintenance, and responsibility through his sculptural, installation, and performative works. Erika Osborne spoke about how trees are metaphor and subject in an on-going exploration of the relationship between nature and culture. Leah Wilson told the story of "Listening to the Forest," her installation created for Oregon State University's College of Forestry.
Tree Talk is moderated by Sant Khalsa, ecofeminist artist and activist, whose work has focused on critical environmental and societal issues including forests and watersheds for four decades.
