OFFSHOOT

OFFSHOOT

Design: Dean Brown (Fabrica)
Date: February 2013

Offshoot is a proposal for a public intervention that draws the invisible line between a tree and the wooden stool it may eventually become. The hanging mobile is suggested as an extension of the tree itself, growing through the steps of the production process, branching from a cut log into component parts and finally a useable stool. Bringing transparency to this process pays tribute to a tree as an abundant resource, and asks us not to take it for granted. Offshoot is an outcome of a Fabrica workshop with Martino Gamper, and is inspired by graffiti artists who bring politics, data visualization and discussion into our neighborhoods and public opinion.
