In the face of looming climate change, predicted increase of urban population density and The Anthropocene, the work is motivated by urgency and deep concern of loss of community spaces and opportunities to connect and flow freely through living space as our own.

This loss, the depletion of woodlands, ancient forests, city parks, and inextricably interwoven wild life, plants and species, along with library closures, links together here to critically question 

"Who we are and Where we are going?" in the taken for granted everyday speed of daily consumer life.

Explorations of participative reconnections, potential human empathy for life forms beyond our own kind in the presence of the otherness of trees, their language and intelligence, are investigated in a rich tapestry of materials and processes, of textiles, photographs, videos, ceramics, silent walks, carvings and writings.

Engendering deformatting in a 'keen eyed re-sensitised childlike curiosity zone,' focus is on phycological shift and decolonizing our relationship to nature.

Recognising connections through archives and libraries, books and paper, and nurturing of growth and fruition. Opportunity is offered here to hand write, display and share tree 'stories'; any personal thoughts about trees. To be archived.
