In my old diary I wrote about Maria T.D. Inocencio a couple of times. She is the one who made an exhibition called the Tree. A Big Leaf Maple in her own yard had to be cut down and so she brought it into the Autzen Gallery at PSU. At the end of this show, people were able to take away snags and seedlings. We still have this one in our yard, though someday it will have to be moved.
Maria works with all kinds of materials, including hair. You see her hair in these stones above, which she gave me for my 50th birthday. They are special - I have them in my kitchen and look at them everyday.
