Installation for the Cornerstone Festival of Gardens, Napa Valley
New life was given to a diseased tree slated for removal by decking its branches with 75,000 retrofitted sky-blue Christmas balls. The landscape equivalent of a Photoshop eraser saturated this natural tree with the artificial in a bid for total camouflage. But the opposite result occurred: Blue Tree stood out against the ever-changing sky, becoming a barometer for subtle fluctuations in natural light.
