Branding Project #1: a reverie

 

7 fire-branded tree stumps

at Fort Jay, Governors Island, NY

2011

 

dimensions variable

 

Located near the northwest point of Fort Jay’s star shape design, Project #1 uses 7 small stumps in an irregular cluster.

 

The site offers clear views of the harbor and the surrounding city, whose frenetic activity contrasts sharply with the empty streets and buildings on the island.

 

As of 2013, all the stumps in this series had completely deteriorated.
