Apple Tree Zero
Weathered and rusted steel – 22″ x 34″
By Danno, 2006
For weeks during late fall and early winter, the leaves from an apple tree and pine needles from a fir tree near by fall on this steel panel. The rain and snow slowly rust an imprint of life at ground zero underneath an apple tree into steel. Bugs, mice, birds also contributed to this piece as they scurried across it’s surface to get to the fallen apples near by. Check out the slide show to see how it the piece took shape.
