Abstract: 200-400 words
The materials of my early kinetic works were non-living willow branches infiltrated with technological implements. My work now considers the implications of technological entities that encroach on our everyday lives. Salix uses living willows and address our environment, technology, communication and the artistic interpretation of these.             Salix explores two concepts by using the movement of willow branches in the environment as a foundation for evaluation of how individuals observe and interpret data and form. The implanting of technology to explore branch movement of living willows will further allow me to examine technology and biology as one entity.
