chairs in trees

A few weekends ago, Val and I made a trip down south. We had friends to visit in Raleigh and Durham, where we used to live during graduate school, and we also wanted to get a taste of South Carolina. We met up with J and C at the North Carolina State Art museum, which is the coolest museum I’ve ever been to. Besides the usual exhibitions with artwork from the medieval through renaissance to modern periods, they have a 160 acre park that is filled with grand sculptures and various projects that incorporate nature with art. It was amazing! My favorite was a small wooded area that with tress filled with wooden chairs. The immensity of the trees’ strength is undeniable when you can the trees are actually growing over the chair legs. It’s kind of like something you would see out of an eerie science fiction novel. Mother nature taking back what’s hers. It’s intriguing, this exploration between nature vs. people. Unfortunately, we were only able to go for a couple hours and only got to see a snippet. I captured glimpses so you can see, and you can read more about it here. I highly recommend a trip there!
