Prevoke Change – back to secondary

I then went back to some secondary research. I started researching different facts about trees. Ways in which they help the environment. Below are and example of some of them.

“A tree, over a 50-year period, will generate $31,250 worth of oxygen, provide $62,000 worth of air pollution control, and recycle $37,500 worth of water.”

“One acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and puts out four tons of oxygen. This is enough to meet the annual needs of 18 people. -U.S. Department of Agriculture”

“A tree can grow to manufacture five pounds of pure oxygen per day, consume carbon dioxide to fight the “greenhouse effect” that threatens our survival, and provide the cooling equivalent of ten room-size air conditioning units.”

I then started thinking of ways to incorporate this information in an interesting way. This i found hard, and as usual, my work started turning into reals of facts that no one really wants to read.

In responce to this, i started playing around with the images from the scanned leaves and came up with this.

although i made this piece from just playing around, i think in the back of my head i had some kind of meaning developing.
