Edge Species

This sculpture focuses our attention on one of the most productive and exciting places in the landscape. The forest edge. The transition between the naturally occurring forest, and the manmade field. A place where man has unintentionally provided habitat for plants and animals. The forest edge is also intriguing in another sense. The field is open, and the forest is enclosed. I thought that I would highlight this duality by reversing the placement of a manmade structure within this framework. What was once open is now closed, and what was once closed is now open.

We can experience the forest edge.
