How to Discipline a Tree

Derek Kreckler's exhibition 'How to Discipline a Tree' opens at the Paper Mill on June 28th, and while it's not virtual art it is pretty amazing.
"How to discipline a tree" consists of hundreds of bricks made from compressed newspaper, newspapers brought into an average Sydney household in one month; "Indeed a close inspection will reveal the odd un-pulped word shining out with un-foretold meaning like a Dada poem. These words are the detritus of what is already a byproduct of everyday waste"
And while it may look pretty blocky, the shape he's created is based on the buttress roots of a Moreton Bay Fig.
Cool heh? Click on the title to this post to go to the Paper Mill site.
