Statement: “Through our work we seek to evoke and bring awareness to the powerful transformative events and feelings that nature reveals. As the human understanding and experience of Nature becomes ever more digitally mediated -- if not cybernetic -- and distanced from direct kinesthetic interaction we see our work as a prompt to remind the viewer, and ourselves, that we are just an extension of Nature.”

Bark Book
By Lauri Twitchell & Peter Suchecki
California: Lauri Twitchell, 2016. One-of-a-Kind.

6 x 11 x7" bark pages bound in pine bark boards with hemp cord binding. Materials: Melaleuca bark, stone pine bark, leather, nails, hemp.

Lauri Twitchell & Peter Suchecki : “We find things on the ground. The thing’s texture, form, color or reminiscence of another form begins a process of developing a story. The story can be fictional, non-fictional, or poetic. Bark Book started with fallen sheets of melaleuca bark that had peeled from its trunk then dropped to the ground and lay folded like pages of a book. The poetic text and the image of landscape seemed to be already imbedded in the bark. Adding to it would be superfluous. The cover of Bark Book is of pine bark from a tree that had fallen a year before. The book is bound with a hybrid binding using hemp cord.”
