Untitled (25 Belts), 2005
8′ x 14″ x 14″ (H x W x D)
I chose this particular tree because of the vertical cleave in the trunk. The belts are symbolically performing a reparative task.
The longest belts are used at the base, where the tree is thickest, while the shortest belts are used at the top.
Thanks to the Riverhead, NY Congregationist Church Thrift Shop for all the belts.
