merging grids, tribute to Cor Noltee Dordrecht, Holland

osier in the Merwelanden Dordrecht Holland - a willow sculpture by Lucien den Arend - his landscaping and environmental art and sculpture
4m grid of willow branches - the top 1m peeled - in an existing osier in the Merwelanden Dordrecht, Holland

With Merging grids, tribute to Cor Noltee I added a layer a grid of regularly and calculated strict pattern of willows - differentiating them from the randomly growing shorter coppices.

I planted four-meter long willow rods in a stringent system of squares. The title of this work refers to the incongruity between my contribution and the original arrangement of the randomly planted original willows. I accentuated my grid by peeling the bark off the tops of the newly planted branches leaving about half the length to grow in the early weeks of the spring. Below the peeled part new branches grew. Eventually the geometrically perfect grid will merge with the random one, and the result will be almost invisible.

 A year later the management of the osier coppiced them to a for the osier workers easy to maintain height.
