Dave Rittinger: Color Pencil Tree

Dave Rittinger's “Color Pencil Tree” is a proposed art installation that would turn the branches of public trees slated for removal into giant colouring pencils. Speaking about the project Dave says, "My work is often playful, colorful and incorporates a sort of metaphorical blending of objects and function, so the fact that pencils are made of trees just made perfect sense. I really liked the idea of morphing the raw material into an embodiment of a manufactured product at this exaggerated scale."
