Living furniture viventes supellectilem
Thanks to artist Peter Cook (http://pooktre.com) and a few others you can now be one with your garden. They are able to shape trees in to forms such as “stick” men, chairs, tables, and benches. The process of shaping takes years but once the tree shape reaches a “functional” stage you can physically experience your garden instead of just enjoying the pleasant sights and smells.
Quite often, something is described as being a part of nature when it comes into its own being and changes without the touch or knowledge of man manipulating it. Then is a tree that has been shaped by man no longer a part of nature, even though it continues to grow in the same way as before, after man has left it?
