Abstract

In Norse mythology, Yggdrasil was an enormous ash tree that harboured all the life in the universe a signifier of its power and resilience. For the last ten years an Ash tree has propagated every available spot in the artists garden like a virile weed, she likens its resilience to radio which has already outlived video and the ipod. The artist believes her personal experience of the Ash tree highlights that it may not completely disappear as first feared by experts and this view is reflected in reports concerning the deadly fungus.

This work takes poetry made during a workshop on Ash die back, turning scientific descriptions of how the disease spreads, into a spore like radio composition reflecting her interactions with ash, and transmitted from the trunk of an infected tree for broadcast on FM into the gallery.
