This ongoing series of sculptures and actions proposes poetic and tensile entanglements between human bodies and trees, with textiles as the intermediary. Behind this work is a desire to imagine and queer interspecies intimacy. I have taken a tree climbing course at Cornell University, studied the tensile properties of arborists’ ropes and knots, planted an art materials arboretum on my property, begun a series of sculptures enmeshing tree and human limbs, and developed a workshop called Arbor ∞ Ardor (with collaborator Paloma Barhaugh-Bordas) wherein participants court the tree of their choice and are guided into intimate contact with rope binds.
