TREE BOOK© is a site specific, interactive sculpture that activates space. It is a tree, transformed into a sizable book, which comes from a series of non-traditional art books created by the artist. TREE BOOK© is a sandblasted, finely polished cherry tree with the roots sitting securely on a steel base. The base is grounded with an Earth element, usually soil.
The rich canvas pages are fixed to saplings and can be turned for easy viewing and reading. These pages depict original words and images from Shannon Willow’s deep seated passion for conservation and preservation of our natural world. TREE BOOK© commands the viewers’ attention and illustrates Earth consciousness and the beauty that surrounds us. We often take things in nature and our resources for granted and disregard them – even the smallest details. TREE BOOK© calls the viewer to reconnect from our separateness of Earth and self, and live in harmony and balance of all things gifted to us.
Purchase TREE BOOK© and create a stimulating visual of Earth energy and conversation in your home or business. TREE BOOK© is currently seeking new activation in your space.
I specialize in Venetian glass trade beads and have been collecting them for over 25 years. I have many types of museum quality trade beads, and will carefully customize your unique piece to fit your style. I am currently writing and illustrating an art book about these unique, historic beads, mostly circa 1800s, made primarily in Venice, Italy. These beads were taken to coastal regions of Africa where they were used as currency and traded for African commodities that the Europeans wanted to obtain, such as ivory and palm oil. My collection features mostly rare, museum quality beads and I use them to create custom bead designs for my clients. Each of these amazing glass beads has a special and unique quality; a rich, tactile experience.
