environment( branches, paint), 2017
My work deals with island-wide navigation spanning the entire Symposion Island, Lake Velence. The painted tree branches are its centers that I painted based on their location on the island. So, if we encounter them, they give us information about where we are on the island: what directions and how far the cardinal points are from the location of a branch.
"I pared the cardinal directions with colors and I placed tree branches at different points of the island. I painted the colors of the directions proportionally as the branch's location motivated it, e.g.: if one is further from north but closer to south, the blue of the north is dominant compared to the yellow of the south."
One of the fellow participants of the art colony, Filoména Thorday created the GPS map visible amongst the photos by making a route circling 3 times around each branch.
