This was a series of installations at University of California, Berkeley, one of which is shown. It's a parody of architectural symmetry. Gradually the tree's new growth adapts the gravitropic response -- new growth turns up, tries to grow up again. There are a couple of interesting asides that might become relevant -- this piece was also pulled down and destroyed by the stationary engineers at UC Berkeley because of something called 'tectonic anxiety.' Its actually unfortunate because there is a paper that's come out of this -- on the opposition of gravitropism and phototropism -- this phenomenon hadn't been documented. I wonder if Tree Logic was presented as a research project, if it would have been so hurriedly pulled down in the middle of the night, as it was as an art project.
