bend to the light was commissioned by Spitting Image Collective in 2015 with admiration for the tallest, most massive, longest-living organisms ever to grow on earth: trees. These remarkably resilient and resourceful beings, though often taken for granted, should be commended for their ability to fend off stress and strain--a lesson in adaptation for dealing with our own trails and tribulations. When facing crisis, these unique living systems add strength to their structure, compartmentalize decay, and bend to the light.
