“centering 2016” is a ‘project in process’ documenting organic matter, most particularly, trees, that have been destroyed by various natural and man-made circumstances. the first phase of the project documents sections–slices–of trees downed in the 2014 storm (žled) that tragically devastated many forested areas throughout slovenia. each radiograph includes the latitude and longitude, age and genus of the once vertical tree. by entering the coordinates into google earth one can locate the origins of the tree, and the site of its demise. aspects of the project are corollaries relating to the narrative works of the seventeenth-century physician and occultist robert fludd to contemporary issues of deforestation. further transformative images and writings are forthcoming.
