This is the way spoons grow. It also happens to be their blooming season.
Dormant, by June Woest & Urban Artists
It is a nearly impossible task to bring the dead back to life, but I tried. For the show Preserving Space I collected broken branches from the floor of Russ Pitman Park and whittled their ends with a utility knife in order to create a memory of what could have been. I drilled holes in the deadwood, then attached wooden spoons to act as shallow reservoirs to catch and hold rain water. Can spoons hold rain water? I am left wondering whether the broken and dried branches on the park floor were dead or merely dormant.
Thank You Urban Artists
