Preserving Space in Russ Pitman Park
March 28 - May 2, 2010
Dormant, by June Woest & Urban Artists
For Preserving Space I collected broken branches from the floor of Russ Pitman Park and whittled their ends with a utility knife. It is a near impossible task to bring the dead back to life. I drilled holes in the deadwood, then attached wooden spoons to act as shallow reservoirs to catch and hold rain water. My experimental forms appear to be absorbing rain. The wooden spoons and broken branches recognized each other right away. I am now left wondering whether the brown and crooked branches on the park floor were dead or merely dormant.
Thank You Urban Artists
