Lynden artist-in-residence Yevgeniya Kaganovich recently began Tree Intuits Chair, a five-year project that asks this question: If a tree was able to foresee its existence as a chair, what would it think of it? The project, which involves grafting and shaping poplar and aspen trees into living chairs, is part of a larger body of work, Divergent Fates, that explores issues of material agency, sustainability, and consumption, as well as human impact on the environment. In this workshop, we will examine the everyday objects that surround us and consider our relationship to them. Outdoors, we’ll check the progress of Kaganovich’s trees and select a non-human object from the natural world. Back in the studio, we’ll imagine that object’s secret life in a zine, and we’ll “unmake” discarded paperback books into tree sculptures.
