The work linked to my interest in Japanese packaging and their aesthetic regarding wrapping and packaging. I had previously been interested in placing work outside of the gallery and to quote Christo was also ‘revealing through concealing’. Binding the tree in cloth I freed the form and could it offer back to the public to see anew. It followed a concern with unearthing qualities in the commonplace that were worthy of note and were mainly over looked.. Bound referred to the process of binding and swathing the trees in cloth, to the time and intention in making the work – and connecting to place and and also to boundaries.
