Wooden Bookshelves Emerge From a Fallen Tree


These wobbly bookshelves seem a bit out of place in the middle of the forest, but, according to artist David Harper, the project is perfectly placed as a visual reminder to be mindful of and to care for our environment. Entitled Stacks, the site-specific piece was displayed at the Cazenovia College's Art and Design building in Cazenovia, NY, and featured rickety shelves that grew directly from the wood of the surrounding fallen trees.

The environmentally-aware project was constructed outdoors to signify the relationship that exists between many humanmade objects and their direct connections to nature. We read from books, sit upon wooden chairs, and lean on wooden tables, all thanks to the natural resources of our planet. Stacks was created as an homage to these living trees. Harper says one of the main purposes for the project was to raise awareness about “the growing worldwide disregard for our interdependence with the planet's environment, [which] heightens my profound concern for her health.”
