Shredded garden and cubed oak

2009-04-26, , Comments

My favourite work in the Forest of Dean sculpture trail, “Raw”, photographed here by Matt Burns, provides an affirmative answer to the question set by the artist:

Could you cube up a whole tree, trunk and branches from the largest size to the smallest one cut?

Cubed Oak

The resulting cube has a side of about 2m, easy enough to climb up on. What’s most impressive is the huge space around it — the space occupied by a mature oak tree.

This weekend we created our own sculpture, “Shredded garden”. With our neighbour’s permission, we pushed his garden through a letter box. Here’s the result. (Full story.)

What do you get if you put a garden through a shredder?
