Ghost Tree creates a spooky image. This is a simple concept which involves the creation of a ghost tree by painting a dead tree white. It is a narrative on the decline of trees and by regenerating a dead object brings to attention the value of these structures within the enviroment.The paint will gradually wear off as this intervention is taken over by nature's natural processes.
