Things that happen to trees, 2014-15
Installation from photographs, drawings and sculptures, variable dimensions
While organizing the archive of photographs collected through different projects and cities, I found a series of images of trees. I analyze and rethink this material taking the symbol of the tree in the city and the different ‘interventions’ that it is subjected to as way to propose other models of dialog and interacting between the natural and the constructed. The project consists of a series of photographs and watercolors that document trees in different states, situations and cities, intervened found objects in which the natural and the industrial materials blend or ‘complement’ each other, and pen drawings composed of layers of transparent paper, that function as proposals for other ways of thinking and constructing spaces, a kind of natural architecture.
