High Park Toronto ON
The o'honey collective, David Bobier and Leslie Putnam, propose an installation work for High Park that seeks to dissolve the boundary between the artists and the trees.
By introducing artist made polypore shaped vessels onto trees in High Park, and then encouraging mosses endemic to the area to grow on them, there becomes a collaboration between the two different species. The symbiosis created by this installation encourages the consideration of where we as humans fit in the forest or treed landscape.
In this installation,as creators of objects, o’honey encourages public participation through the placing of found natural objects, some encased in wax or string on the polypor founts for the public to “discover”
