Marie-Luise Klotz, Christopher Lin, Erika Osborne, Leah Wilson

For our May Tree Talk, we will hear from four ecoartspace artists who will share their ideas and artworks about trees and forests. Marie-Luise Klotz will present her project, “Connected Earth,” which considers how nature is deeply connected forming a single entity that is whole in and of itself. Christopher Lin will discuss empathy, symbiosis, maintenance, and responsibility through his sculptural, installation, and performative works. Erika Osborne will speak about how trees are metaphor and subject in an on-going exploration of the relationship between nature and culture. Leah Wilson will tell the story of “Listening to the Forest,” her installation created for Oregon State University’s College of Forestry.



Tree Talk is moderated by Sant Khalsa, ecofeminist artist and activist, whose work has focused on critical environmental and societal issues including forests and watersheds for four decades.
