Resuscitation (sculptural installation)

This piece implies the circulatory system of living beings and references the vulnerability and absurd destruction of our natural environment. It invites contemplation of the interconnected relationship between human beings and the natural world through the futile and ineffective hospital-like triage the trees appear to be undergoing. The piece is consists of 2 [already dead] live oaks with root balls intact, vinyl, paint, cotton gauze, and steel.
