Witness Tree 2009

Selective laser sintering, nylon prime part
Meadow Arts commission, 2009

Witness Tree was made using the latest body scanning technology and 3D imaging software. The figures forming the trunk are exact images of the three artists. In spite of its high technological, digitized origin, the work is a direct response to the ancient trees found in the grounds of Croft castle. The gnarled and fissured texture of the trees bark and the elaborate forms of their trunks and branches prompt thoughts of mythical metamorphoses.

Like an unfamiliar tree species brought back from distant lands by avid botanists, the strange new specimen is being grown in the controlled and protected environment of a very small green house ( akin to the Victorian Wardian Case) which is itself placed with the walled garden.
