09.05.13 The Moon Tree & the Garden of Illusion
This remarkable brass tree, at the centre of the space, is a facsimile of the original Ilex crenata (bonsai) tree that used to reside in the garden but had to be removed because it struggled to thrive. In order to extend the metaphorical quality of the garden Tom collaborated with Adam Lowe and Factum Arte to make a brass copy of it. Now everything within the garden becomes a little Haiku of naturalism.
