Drunken Forest

Drunken Forest, 2006, latex over bamboo and wire, 17"x11"x9"

Drunken Forests are caused by melting permafrost. It can happen to buildings, too, which is interesting. It has been happening as long as there has been permafrost that isn't permanent, but the incidents of drunken forests and sinking infrastructure are increasing in Alaska and other arctic places.

This is so engaging and sticky. I really like this piece and it seems to really convey the reference of the trees.

I once had this overwhelming experience two years ago in the Shenendoah mountains. I saw an entire forrest destroyed by foriegn moths. The trees looked white and dried, it was such a sad sight but visually incredible. I really like your take on the traditional landscape as seen thru the perspective of modern environmental damage.
