Nature's persistence

Mixed

360 mm x 110 mm x 425 mm

The piece symbolises the relationship between nature and technology in the modern world. The simple infinite growth of the rings has been altered. Their uneven shape, now unified and well defined. They have changed direction into a void of confusion, wonder and uncertainty, mirroring how humanity's path has been changed by our technological advancements. Though nature still surrounds this developing world. Without nature we could not be what we are. Nature produced the tree; the tree was altered by technology. The piece poses a question. One that can apply to anything in life – will it last forever?
