Double Tree

Slight slopes. Inclines. Grades. Of stone and soil, grass and wooden chip. With some trees for good measure.

Each block slightly different. Unique in its exact origin, weathering, cut, feel. I’ve been reading through a book on a Japanese restaurant designer who always incorporates big blocks of granite or salvaged pieces of metal into his interiors. He focuses on the information contained within raw materials that is opposite from the sleek uniformity of mass-produced plastics, metals, etc. A two-ton block of granite tells infinite stories. A new iPhone does not.

Natural information.
