Description

Branching patterns can be found throughout the natural world- from leaf veins and root systems, to coral, mineral dendrites, and a single brain neuron. This workshop will focus on these beautiful, efficient and energy-transmitting forms. Participants will observe and sketch from specimens, then create a wire tree sculpture incorporating a math and division process that mimics how trees grow in nature. Human made constructs such as mapping, urban planning, circuitry, etc. will also discussed. If residency, other creative projects include printmaking from botanical specimens, cyanotypes (sunprints), sequential growth drawings, modeling branching using K’Nex, legos, rope unraveling, outdoor land art, etc.
