It was a bit of a journey of self-discovery. First I had to find a tree, a much larger one than in the previous attempt. After a walk in the park I saw a tree that not only was massive but looked climbable:
Next was the biggest challenge of all- getting up into the tree. I learned that I am a terrible climber. Terrible. I couldn't think of a way to get up the tree at first but found a log and decided to roll it over to give me a little assistance.
I pruned the extra plastic and took a look. It didn't look like I wanted it to. I climbed up again to try to fine ways to alter it in someway. Feeling discouraged I began to climb back down. Then I realized that the split down the middle of the tree was also a triangle and decided I could try something there as well. And so I did.
There was light coming from across the expressway that was extremely complementary. I really like the log in the piece, even though it was simply there for practical reasons. Additionally I think the centerpiece turned out better than the curtain in the branches. Pretty much my favorite things about this project were either thought of while on site, or happened on accident. Also 'the process' was a lot more demanding than I thought. I have scrapes, and am pretty tired from the climb. Who needs the gym when you have earth art I suppose?
