Honey Locust Layers

 

 

 

The strata that make up an urban landscape consist of many layers. Street trees, the most common of which is the Honey Locust, are added to the top layer of concrete strata, not quite replacing the natural arbors that came before them. In this piece, the dormant urban tree is without foliage, but the shadow of the tree is animated, hinting at spring or at a time before sidewalks.
