Remains

Ryerson Image Arts, Third Floor Gallery
122 Bond St, 3rd Fl, Rm 301

Erickson’s images document the remains of several dozen mature oak trees, felled in the process of urban expansion. Shredded by metal blades, the once-living bundles of fibre in these photographs were once the roots of trees. Printed at a large scale, the images offer viewers a formal meditation on the complex social dimensions of humanity’s unrelenting and often violent impact on the environment.
