Oak Circle Installation Sonoma
Oak Circle was an installation created for the Late Show Gardens at Cornerstone in Sonoma. Based on the California Coast Live Oak, a photographic screen depicts the Oak canopy encircling visitors as they sit on benches made from fallen Oak trees. Silk screened limestone pavers list animal, bird, and insect species who make use of the Oak tree for food and habitat. Highlighted among them is the scrub jay who will relocate thousands of acorns in one season.
