Bookshelves Grow From a Dead Tree

February 25, 2013


In an effort to remind us of the relationship between manmade objects and nature, artist David Harper envisioned this bookcase emerging from a fallen log at Cazenovia College's in New York. Entitled Stacks, the project was created as homage to the trees that surround it and to raise awareness about "the growing worldwide disregard for our interdependence with the planet’s environment, [which] heightens my profound concern for her health."
