Cultivation, 2007 is a pair of gallows poles and hanging nooses grown with living vines. This evolving sculpture was trained on a slender modern frame into the shape of the all-too-familiar form of the gallows, questioning whether a human need for punishment and revenge is natural or manmade, cultivated or untamed. Cultivation was exhibited at the Black & White Gallery, Williamsburg, in Spring 2007.
