Branched Drogue

June 7, 2002

During the winter of 2001/02 I worked with the remnants of a tall poplar tree while living on the island of Nantucket. Diseased at the trunk, the tree was taken down to insure it would not fall on the barn at the school that gave me a residency. Over the course of the winter I worked with the branches and trunk to create a series of works titled "drogues".
