61 glass jars containing artifacts (vestiges of mortal decisions) ; over one hundred rounds of fir; thousands of yards of split rubber innertubing; and seventeen life-sized ceramic birds. This major installation occupied a 420-square foot room with 16 foot ceilings.

61 refers to a study by arboreal ecologist Dr. Nalini Nadkarni, in which she and her graduate students surveyed the trees on Earth, and as of New Year?s morning 2008, counted 61 trees per person on this planet.
