Tree of Life F

Sep 17 – Oct 02
Romare Bearden Park

BPA Fellow Constructed primarily out of reused, clear plastic bottles, this massive tree boasts a complex root system through which you can physically walk. During the day, it appears opaque. However, at night multi-colored illumination highlights the connections of the different branches, like a circulatory system. As you take notice that this remarkable tree is made out of what is in your own trash can, the title, “Tree of Life,” becomes ironic as there is nothing living about this tree. There is no way that anyone can manufacture a living, breathing tree. The wonder will slowly become somber as you realize these hundreds of upcycled plastic bottles are only a fraction of what Charlotteans use each year.   Contributing Artist: Angela Kollmerr - @upcycleartsclt Doyle Bussey  - @doyle.bussey TuxedoKat - @tuxedokat.imaginarium
