Order and Balance - 2019
Giclee Print on Hahnemuhle Pearl
Heidegger's The Question Concerning Technology holds that nature "(standing reserve)" is a resource that man exploits for financial gain.
This site-specific work uses nine hundred and eighty-nine cubes from the dying tree's remains to cover the trunk in an attempt to merge order and technology with nature. The remainder of the decaying tree guided each perfectly cut 4.5cm cube attached to a galvanized steel mesh to create the engulfing form. The work has become synonymous with selfies; the object is brought into the living through a photographic device and perversely adds value to a dead tree.
