Winter Dies Spring Emerges: Ginkgo Tree

“Winter Dies Spring Emerges: Gingko Tree”. This was a time-sensitive outdoor process project. I suspended garlands of dream-journal entries that looked like multiples of Tibetan prayer flags painted black. The "dream-strings" were woven through the branches of a gingko tree where they eventually faded in spring weather while the gingko’s swollen buds burst and bright green leaves unfolded. The faded "dream-strings" came down for a ceremonial burn. I mixed the ash with compost and spread it all around the gingko in a circle that was topped by fallen flower petals, collected from the base of flowering fruit trees in my neighborhood. The installation lasted from April into May, at Bedrock Gardens in Lee, NH.
