This place is constructed from hundreds, possibly thousands of fallen limbs I gathered from the forest floor. Woven between these limbs are a collection of various living plants, some native and other invasive to the area. Native plants such a red pine, red maple, along with invasive species, like Glossy Buckthorn, Sycamore Maple, and Bush Honeysuckle work in harmony to fortify and support the numerous rows of dead branches. Due to the intervention and direct action of a single person, these species are no longer competing, but instead coexisting in a way that strengthens the surrounding ecosystem. Large canes of blueberry bushes supported by the arching walls reach further towards the sun. Many of the trees in this area were threatened by poison ivy. The fast growing vine chokes the tree’s trunk, eventually killing it. I carefully removed and re-directed the many ivy vines to the basket walls. By doing this I was able to utilize the attributes of the plant to further enhance the meditative space and protect the local timber.
