"theresa tree"

"August 2008, Rogue Studios, NYC"

Video of trees projected onto my body. I am bound cocoon-like to a plank & propped above a round pond filled with wet water-color paper. Mid way red & brown ink begins to seep through the swaddling and drip onto the paper. The sap/blood making a trace, a painting. So the contemplation is about consciousness, human and tree.

Identity

Non-existence

Tree / Wind

Existence beyond consciousness

Art / nature

A mark, a trace, a shroud, a stain

Theresa Tree

The contemplation on trees is for me about the origin of life/death, perhaps even the meaning or non-meaning of existence & our human irrelevance in the shadow of nature. Trees pre date mammals. If God is air (Prana), than trees are the mother of God. To me this is worth contemplation.

MISSION STATEMENT

“TACTICAL STREAM artists in action” - To unite & inspire people, honor women & the earth, mobilize the masses & attract global media.”

WATER WORLD

Violence & Freedom are similar, which is America built on and which does it promise & deliver? And If both, in what measure? Does violence fuel our idea of freedom? Competition & battle are human nature, it begins as inocent play & is subverted into the acceptance of violent oppression of people & the planet. “Inciting joy”, you can not be arrested for that. Joy & rebellion are contagious, bringing us to the awakening that not war, not love, but play between people grants us freedom, an intrinsic human trait that we must never forget.
