RINGS at Queens Los Angeles

This iteration of RINGS consist of 5 drawings, 1 sculpture and a publication/zine. The black walnut frames for the drawings and sculpture were CNC routed out of a whole tree slab to accentuate the tree rings, and in turn years, so that each frame literally becomes a bracket for a set of dates and events. The tree was felled in 2016 because it was dying. The content within the frames (drawings) is generated by said years, coincidental findings and research.
