Looking Outwards – 06

The work that I chose is called Tree Drawing by artist Tim Knowles. The canvas was placed in close proximity with a tree branch, and 100 ink pens were attached to the tree branch.

I thought this project was particularly interesting, because movement of nature is truly random and unable to predict. In this particular work, the factors that create the artwork would be the breeze, the intensity and direction, and how the tree branches move accordingly. The final presentation of the work breaks the canvas into equal size parts. The original canvas was placed on the ground, made specifically to create a disc-like shape around an entire tree.
