THE TREES THAT WERE
Museum of tomorrow...
In the year twenty seventy-three the last remaining forests on Earth were demolished. The deforestation was caused by a long period of slash and burn agriculture, which led to infertile land. Trees perpetuated the water cycle by returning water vapor to the atmosphere and absorbed greenhouse gases that fuel global warming. With the absence of trees came loss of habitat and major climate change. Many species were unable to survive these circumstances and many coastlines were flooded. Without the trees, Earth is becoming nearly uninhabitable. We live with devastating super storms, low oxygen levels and solar rays of constantly increasing intensity. The sculptures displayed here were created with salvaged pieces of trees in hopes of educating the young survivors of today and in remembrance of the trees that were.
Balance of Time
In this collaboration piece created by artists Sean Burton and Jennie Lynn Grunstad, the weight of each tree log holds one another up, creating a balance. Dendrochronology is the dating and study of annual rings in trees. Scientists called dendrochronologists uses rings to answer questions about the natural world and the place of humans in its functioning. The logs are cut to show the annual rings inside. They are stacked, creating a balance. As the trees here are balanced, Earth needs trees to keep a balance in the atmosphere. This piece was inspired by artist Andy Goldsworthy, a British environmentalist, sculptor, and photographer who creates land art and site specific sculptures situated in natural and urban settings.
Trees played a critical role in absorbing greenhouse gases that fuel global warming. Since the last forests disappeared, larger amounts of greenhouse gases are entering the atmosphere, which has exponentially increased speed and severity of global warming. As Earth heats up, sea levels raise which causes flooding of many coastlines. The tree in these photographs represents the trees that have fallen due to deforestation. The water that the tree rests and reflects in serves as a representation of rising water levels caused by deforestation.
