Original function – This series of sculptures explores the original function of processed natural materials within the man-made object. Through the combination of original characteristics of, for example, cut wood, hydroponics and plants the material gets the opportunity to be a living organism again.

The works within the series Original Function represent various elements of trees and plants. In Original Function #1 the trunks of the Douglas tree carry the hollow, handmade, wooden step ladder and at the same time functions as the water reservoir so that the plants can live in symbiosis with the supporting materials.

Size and materials:
80x60x200cm – Processed wood, tree trunks, water, plants and a pump
