  • Thinking Tree

    Live tree (Carya ovata),  photoluminescent pigment. Dimensions: approximately 6 x 4  x 4 feet / 1,82 m x 1,21 m x 1,21 m

    This project was made during a residency at I-Park in East Haddam, Connecticut. It is a site-specific environmental intervention visible only during the night. The smallest branches of a live tree, charged from sunlight, glow after dark. Their drawing in space mirrors, through their morphology, the image of human neurons firing.

    I consider every form in nature the result of a complex system of self-organization. I am fascinated by similarities between seemingly unrelated organisms, particularly between the human body and other organisms, which I feel compelled to make visible.
