Seattle-based artist John Grade has created Middle Fork, a tree sculpture that has been made up of hundreds of thousands of individual wood pieces. To get the shape of the sculpture, John and his assistants scaled a 140-year old old-growth Western Hemlock tree, where they took plaster casts of its trunk and limbs.
Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira’s incredible installations look like giant overgrown tumors or roots that are slowly taking over the spaces they inhabit breaking through doors, walls, floors, and ceilings. Created out of splintered and discarded plywood Oliveira’s creations look like three dimensional wooden patchwork quilts that are taking over every nook and cranny they can, never stopping to ask for permission or directions.(via collabcubed)
