Diary of the Trees

With the help of two young masterclass students, a symbolic map of Hahndorf's significant historic trees and the old creek course was laid down next to the Hahndorf Academy, during The Heysen Festival. Each form is constructed of stacked newspaper bales, coated and shaped with moist compost, before laying on a covering of instant lawn. You can see where north is by the side which dried out first. Children were often seen climbing up to hug the tree forms (2-3m H).
