An Urban "Forest"


I spent the day at a trade show at the Toronto Congress Centre which has a newly renovated building giving it over 1 million sq ft of floor space. In the midst of this very commercial environment is this wonderful installation of old wooden beams set into the floor and rising towards the ceiling like trees in a forest. There is something comforting and majestic about natural wood no matter what the setting! This pic shows just a section of the whole piece.

I love wood too, and it's great to see an installation made with demolition wood that remind us we must preserve the trees, the forests!
Fantastic! ;-)

I like this one too! You certainly have some great art at your disposal.

That is the last thing I would expect in this otherwise cool and modern building. More of the public art I have been drooling about in Toronto.

It amazes me how much artwork you sniff out in just one city! I'm not sure why, but I like this particular installation.
