Untitled, plaster, steel, 2015, 36cm x 10cm

I began casting a segment of a tree stump in plaster and have used them in different configurations: sometimes with electrical cords attached to their undersides “plugged” into the wall of the institution, sometimes stacked 20 pieces high to emphasize repetition of the same object in contrast to its impossibility of appearing in nature that way. When set on steel tripods, the cast stumps take on a character of their own when they are pointing their protruding branch end toward or away from each other. This is another exploration in power structures and reflects the invisible connection of systems/people/things to the institution.
