Electree II, 2005
Wire, wire connectors, clamps
Overall dimensions variable

Electree II is a grouping of four intricate shrub-like sculptures constructed of solid copper insulated wire, plastic caps and stainless steel clamps. Inspired by the temple ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia where the root systems of large trees entwine and infiltrate the architecture, this work uses common industrial materials to emulate the most complex constructs of nature.
