Often times we are too hasty and hurried to look further than our preconceptions in an environment. Going for a walk in the woods, you may not “find the forest for the trees” – Or you may see the trees, but forget to perceive the magnitude of all the other beautiful and crucial life teeming beneath, inside and beyond.Forest Floor was presented in the Finding The Forest Invitational Show at the Schaefer International Gallery. It is a silk and multimedia installation. I used pre-felled, invasive Wattle trees from upcountry Maui, hollowed them out, made notches for buffed plexiglass “lumbars” between the spines of the tree and ran light thru them. The trees are suspended over the silk which depicts what you might find on a forest floor – on a microscopic level of course.
