Location: Magdalen College Cxford
Interactions: Fabrication, Installation
Types of Client: Artist, Commissioning Body
Mark Wallinger approached the studio after receiving a commission from Magdalen College Oxford. The proposal was to create a tree approximately 11m wide x 9.5 m high x 13 cm thick. The form would be fabricated in painted mild steel and permanently sited in a flooding meadow within the college grounds. The form of the tree was derived from a mathematical formula which generated the fractal type image. The studio undertook the complete package of work; from initial computer based renderings for the planning and proposal, through the design and fabrication process, to the completed installation in the meadow.
