History Trees

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London

“A tree marks time. This artwork will grow year by year, transform as the seasons change, reflecting the evolving nature of the Olympic Park. These trees embrace metal rings which have been engraved with a record of the site’s history, held in the branches for successive decades to come.”

Ackroyd & Harvey, December 2011
