Sculpture: '61 Mortal Decisions (Modern Installation sculptures)' by Deanna Pindell
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.
Trees are mortal, and our own survival is deeply entangled with that of the forests. This installation examines the complexity of the poignant choices facing us, summoning us to reconsider our casual relationship to our mortal existence.
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.

Hi Liliya, Rainbow 1 arrived today. I can`t describe my delight, it is so truly awesome, where did you ever find such a piece of wood, and you are so skilled, creating such a unique piece. I`m not worried about the crack, it`s natural, and part of its beauty. This will be a privilege to own, and will last for so many lifetimes. Kind regards,
Mr A. Chalmers, Suffolk, United Kingdom.
