The Palm Tree Phone Mast
A telecommunications mast erected on the Western end of New Providence, Bahamas, was camouflaged to blend in with the tropical landscape. This 'discovery' was documented on video and subsequently a replica frond was made using the plastic leaves blown off the mast by a passing hurricane.
"... the piece is satisfying and silly at the same time, the artist creeping up on the fake tree, approaching it from different angles, as if it were a living thing."
