Eighteen fronds carved from oak make up this giant fern structure. Morrison was interested in our perceptions of the value of plants through aesthetic values and usefulness, investigating land and vegetation perceived as less valuable like the fern.
“The philosophy behind my work is to draw attention to the singular: that which we see en masse but rarely take the time to look at closely”
Other works by Morrison at Grizedale included Spores (1997 – running uphill from the Ridding Wood trail)
