This assemblage sculpture and accompanying poem was inspired primarily by the Aeolian forces of the wind, shaping the trees within the landscape where I live on the south coast of England.
The tree I put together is made from recycled copper, resin and gold-leaf. I am not a poet but was inspired to write a short poem which I have recorded below. This can be played while viewing the tree.
In my research for this work I made a number of studies of trees within the landscape:
