ways to tie trees
2015 - 2018
Tree-staking, like our innate human instinct to control, is ubiquitous yet largely unnoticed.
Featuring a diversity of (sometimes unorthodox) approaches to the art of tree-tying, this work presents an intimate encounter with the trees and their much-overlooked structures in the garden city of Singapore. Similar to many cities around the world, trees are uprooted and relocated to conform to a controlled cityscape determined by urban-planning. In an attempt to construct a productive and aesthetic living environment for ourselves, nature has long since been subjected to manipulation at the mercy of our hands.
