Flickr Finds: Tree Logic

As the winter months begin to take over our landscape I thought it would be nice to do a Flickr Finds featuring our upside down trees. Enjoy.

Even though this image is not of Tree Logic, I just couldn’t resist including this awesome shot of the tree turbine.

The next Flickr Finds will feature photos of MASS MoCA signage. If you have a photo of the roof sign, the big yellow arrow, etc. upload it to the MASS MoCA Flickr Group now. Your picture could be featured here next month.

Cheers,

Brittany

    I find this installation very unpleasant and truly dislike having to walk past it in order to enter the museum. Trees are living creatures and forcing them to deform for some supposed artisitic purpose is just cruel. Imagine yourselves being strung up by the feet in order for others to observe what happens to you and how you adapt. There is no excuse for this, it is NOT art, and the museum would be making a wonderful statement to acknowledge that and cease deforming trees for the fun of it.
    Apart from that I find MoCA wonderful, usually bring friends who come to visit, and find many enjoyable and thought-provoking exhibits, installations, and performances. You’ve doen a wonderful job integrating the museum into the community and drawing in many different people with a offerings that have a variety of appeals. ofappeals.

    Dear Nancy, ahhhhh… really?

    They’re TREES! and it seems that someone needs to explain this to you: Trees aren’t people.

    It’s called reverse tropism, and has no harmful effects on the plant. It happens in nature all the time. Plants growing on cliffs and outcroppings are seen growing like this all over the world. Not to mention that it looks really really cool!
