Squiggle Salal: Forest Habitat Art Reintroduces Native Plants
Posted By Inhabitat On September 7, 2011 @ 5:32 pm In Art | No Comments
This fascinating work of habitat remediation art meanders 200 feet through the woods. Sculptor Deanna Pindell  removed invasive vegetation and replanted the area with salal, an indigenous shrub. The jute wattles were hand-stitched with the word for salal in eight indigenous languages and surrounded by other poetic language. Eventually the work, called “Squiggle Salal” will decay, becoming mulch and nesting material for the resident flora and fauna.
