'A River and a Tree'

Made during a Residency at The Sidney Nolan Trust, The Rodd, Near Presteigne, 2014

Hindwell Brook, Poplar and Hazel, 25m long

The articulated tree moves with the flow of the river. A stand of very straight poplar trees had recently been felled nearby, on the river bank. I worked with short sections of these trees, adapting a flexible joint that I had originally devised for 'Passing through No Man's Land' in Fukuoka, Japan.
