Language of Grief
Proposal plan
2010
The Language of Grief continues this exploration of our relationship with forests. Imagine walking that same grove, remembering someone you have lost. You come upon a downed branch. Words are inscribed into the wood-- quotes and poems about grief, death and sadness.
These fallen branches, bandaged with gold leaf, are placed under trees in cemeteries.

Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.
Rabindranath Tagore
