Treegeneration (concept sketch)

Dan Bergeron, Treegeneration concept sketch

Treegeneration is a series of interventions in which condo sandwich boards are layered and shaped onto tree stumps, uniting milled wood with its source and transforming both into sculptural forms. Hybrids of the natural and man-made, these sculptures ask viewers to reflect upon notions of home and the fragility of our natural and built environments. Located in the Rosedale Valley ravine system, Treegeneration brings street art to an urban forest creating another hybrid form that activates this public space for visitors through a sense of discovery and incongruity.
