Dennis Lin has collected it, bypassing the mill and has prevented it from being turned into something other than. The Maple has been debarked, sectioned into cookies, sanded, oiled, and waxed: preserved. The 60, three-inch wide slabs are sequentially hung on purpose-built hooks. Each has been numbered and tagged with a brass plate; the tree has been documented and cataloged.
“To see the sections of the tree is to wonder how it grew, how it lived and how it died,” said artist Dennis Lin. “I’ve cataloged this tree out of my own curiosity and to make it accessible for others to question how this organism came into being.”
