Planting Trees (2005, destroyed)

Video (9:15) and site-specific installation. Three twenty-foot-long pine two-by-fours.

This video acts as documentation for a remote outdoor sculpture. Three twenty-foot long two-by-fours and a post-hole digger were purchased at a lumberyard. The wood was then taken to Treman State Park and stood upright in the forest.

The two-by-fours aged with time, weathering in color and texture, growing ever more similar to their surroundings. In 2012, they were clear cut, along with the surrounding stand of trees.
