The Universe made the trees. Think of us as the same as after all we are all made of comic atoms. The current zeitgeist is that trees have a kind of sentience, we react to that in our communing with a forest. At a Scottish Borders forest in September 2021 I’ve made an instillation in the forest of Ruberslaw. My homage to that connection. Informing the trees of two book ends to the history of humanity. The Renaissance and our exploration of space. Visitors listened to the sound of Deep space recorded by the International Space Agency.
It’s my first time making at artwork like this. I was glad to meet up with a group in Chamonix, France making its own Conversation with a Forest.
