The next art installation at the Hill Station is Treecycle. Trees are an essential part of life on earth, they are the breath of the planet and a magnificent feature of our beautiful Telegraph Hill. We use wood every day, it provides our furniture, our fuel, paper, books, cardboard and packaging and ancient trees formed the fossil fuels we use to power the modern world. But trees can also be nurturing or even have mythical or magical associations.
Treecycle uses a playful approach to highlight trees and wood as an essential resource. It will see the installation of a large cardboard tree inside the Hill Station cafe. The branches will stretch out across the ceiling creating an immersive experience. We want to use this space for events.
We are looking for local artists, educators, scientists, storytellers or experts who are interested in running a workshop, talk or event on a tree related theme during November/early December.
These can be aimed at adults or children or both and could run in the evening or weekend at the Hill Station. Possible topics might include – paper recycling, fossil fuel, oxygen and carbon dioxide cycles, the tree lifecycle, local trees, mythical and magical trees or forests, making with paper or cardboard, music with wooden instruments, trees and technology – but if you’ve got a better idea…..
Please email Angel at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief summary of your idea, who it could be aimed at and how long it would be.
