• Colouring Pencil Tree
  • Posted 28 months ago by Jack Lowe · Art & Design · 4337 Views
  • Artist and designer Dave Rittinger has proposed a new idea for a public art piece which would see existing (perhaps existing but dead would be more practical?) trees turned into art pieces by way of turning their branches into giant colouring pencils. So far, Rittinger has only experimented with turning small tree limbs into various different man-made objects (baseball bats and toothpicks have also been tried), but it would certainly be interesting to see this proposal become a reality.
