Hut in the Puriri Tree
size: 1550 x 600 mm
medium: house paints, collage, string, floor boards and window latch on recycled door.
After discovering a flurry of Puriri moths one evening, I began to research both the moths and the Puriri tree. I began sketching my findings directly onto the right hand side of an old door. From the left hand side I began designing a tree hut that would sit in the branches of the Puriri tree. Using old floorboards and a window catch I had stowed away, I then made a screen that can be pulled back and forth across the work, changing its composition.
