TOM PRICE | PP TREE INSTALLATION | Poetic Plastic

Media_httpwwwtomprice_jhcfq

The longevity and ready availability of the industrially manufactured materials used to construct the installation stands in stark contrast to the ephemerality and natural beauty of the cherry trees and blossoms it emulates.

Made exclusively from polypropylene pipe and nylon cable ties, this installation occupied an entire room at Industry Gallery, in Washington DC from September to November 2011.

The work partly pays homage to Washington DC’s own iconic cherry trees, whilst also questioning our relationship with and attitudes towards plastics.
