The Tree of Life is a 13ft cubic timber frame structure built from curved plywood beams. These beams join together at circular timber junctions and are arranged in such a way that they form a series of interlocking circles, reminiscent of the sacred geometry of the Flower of Life. They beams are identical to one another and arranged in a repetitive fashion so the entire structure has a degree of homogeneity and symmetry to its design. The structure appears as a volume of interconnecting timber branches.
Up close, the structure will manifest as a dense volume of timber beams, shooting off in multiple directions like branches of a tree. In specific places, the curved plywood beams are replaced by structural timber leaf-shaped panels. These panels are coloured various shades of green using water based, environmentally friendly wood stains. A subtle leaf-pattern is scored onto their faces and they positioned in an irregular arrangement throughout the structure. The seemingly arbitrary way the panels are positioned and orientated can be compared to the random nature of how leaves appear to fall from a tree.
