Materials: Cotton String and Fallen Branches
This work is a continuation of site-specific research that sought to identify witness trees from 5 forested sites of murder in Eastern Poland. The distances between these trees, measured via GPS, are now wrapped onto fallen branches, collected from a local forest in Halifax, Nova Scotia. While the source data remains the same, the forms offer a different representation of these sites. These works recognize ecology as a way of telling the stories of the shoah, while also provoking questions about the utility and function of artworks as counter-maps.
