Hands Up for Trees

Banner created by Ruth Balogh and  Students in 2019

‘This is in direct response to  the image of hand-prints on a cave wall. It’s a banner I created collaboratively with climate strike students at their Craftivism workshop on Sept 21st Climate Action Day. I painted the tree, they volunteered to use their hands for printing the leaves

 

Tree Dreaming

‘I’ve noticed little caves in the bottom of trees in Highgate Wood and Queens Wood and wanted to photograph a few for my creative project. However on revisiting the wood this morning, I was struck by the number of man-made tree wigwams there exist, and as I find caves more anxiety-provoking than most fellow dreamers in the session, I decided that these better express my feelings.

ARTWORK CREATED AFTER FOURTH VIRTUAL SOCIAL DREAMING MATRIX 22/5/20

Photograph by Olivia Rosen

‘I felt that in order to create something for the last session I needed to be allowed back into public spaces. Then I remembered a Boundaries and Barriers image I had been struck by. It’s in a public building which was sold to a development company. For three or so years while in limbo the building ran wild with creative projects such as this art gallery which flourished along with the ivy that came in through the windows. The ivy and the energy of the space had a quite transient and dreamlike quality.It felt like barriers were being broken’
