Conglomerate (Lichen) No.1

The Conglomerate series are 3D geometric construction “drawings” that grow out of their environment. I relate their formation to the growth processes of the lichen plant and the Tao. Lichens are two plants living together as a single unit; the fungus and the photobiot. Each needs the other to survive. Lichens are site specific, flowerless plants forming where land borders water. Likewise, Conglomerates are built at odd intersections in a room or outside; like where the floor meets the wall. Their environment informs their material and structure, creating a symbiotic relationship. The more this develops, the more these works expand.
