Three small meditation chambers, each one encloses an isolated tree in a hard-surface plaza on a University Campus.
The two larger booths have small meditation benches, so that two people may sit (one in each space). The translucent walls of each triangular chamber reflect sound, so that, although the chambers are 30 feet apart, the two participants can share a quiet conversation.
Originally there were four trees, but one died, leaving an empty space, so the third booth is half-sized and twice as far away from the second (visually emphasizing the emotional perspective).
This site-specific public sculpture counteracted the isolation of the hard brick-paved plaza of the bustling major university.
First, this intervention drew attention to the isolated trees (one of which had died) and created a unity amongst them. Second, the chambers created a space for quiet meditation in communion with a tree; third, two chambers were set to create a unique sonic effect allowing conversation between trees (30 feet apart).
The loose brushwork designs reflect the Asian aesthetic of the Japanese Cherry Blossom trees.
