A multi-component installation which translates the gnawed markings on a tree felled by beavers into cultural forms including: relief printed wallpaper, a cast architectural frieze, furnishings, two dimensional artworks and a digital music score remixed and reconstructed by DJs and experimental musicians. An outhouse renovated into a miniature art gallery refurbished with drywall, track-lighting and a mini- painting retrospective redefines inside and outside spaces.
