«Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.» - 1945
A piece of Hindu scripture from Bhagavad Gita that ran through Robert Oppenheimer’s mind as he witnessed the first detonation of a nuclear weapon.
The Observer as a concept stems from the artist’s deep-rooted fascination with the woods and a growing desire to leave behind all the digital tools of the trade. Within each one lies a hidden message, seamlessly blended in with the tree-rings. An observation of a time and place in history that this particular tree has lived through.
