Out of One, Many… was created in 2016 out of invasive ivy collected by a small group of volunteers, simultaneously restoring a small piece of habitat and the trees from which the sculpture was suspended (see “before” photos at left). It was inspired by the story of its site, Paramount Open Space Park, which has been preserved and restored through decades of stewardship and effort by the surrounding neighbors and volunteers.

Created for the City of Shoreline Percent for Art program.
