The tree comes home to roost


Here’s a shot from the dress rehearsal of the play, which is now over. Lukas brought the tree down to the studio for me today, so it will be ready for a new incarnation in Simi Valley for Earth Day. This year I’m expecting to work with recycled computer circuit boards which will be hung in large numbers from the branches of the tree. Don’t you think the symbolism of the tree of fruit of knowledge of good and evil contrasted with computers is too good to miss? (Sorry Apple!)

    Nope, that’s it – Lukas worked hard and built it for the show. Now it’s down here in the studio at CLU. In May it will be in a show at the Brand Gallery in Glendale.

  2. That looks like Westmont’s Porter Theater…Did you get to go up there and install your tree for a performance…or am I just seeing things here?
