In 2018 I was awarded Artist in Residence for the White Mountain National Forest, during their 100th Anniversary. Growing up in the heart of the White Mountains, Berlin, NH, I was very inspired by the landscape, and how it effected the community. The concept was to upcycle an old tree that had fallen at Dolly Copp Campground, where the piece was built. The tree imassive white pine, about 100 years old, according to the forest rangers. Conceptually, it would represent both the growth of the forest and their organization. We agreed on the spiral form because it is based off the golden ratio, fitting the theme of growth, and eludes to the passage of time and memory.
