Be Different

Artist: Christie Cassisa

Using a tree that had shed its leaves, artist Christie Cassisa covered the bark with coloured tissue paper using water as the adhesive.  The result was a tree which stood out from the others, promoting our uniqueness and embracing our colourful differences.

The project was not without its difficulties: inclement weather, strong winds, and the glue-repelling property of the tree’s moss made the task of adhering the coloured tissue paper particularly challenging. Though the decorated tree was dazzingly bright, the vivid greens and yellows of the tree’s ornamented branches beautifully complemented the colder, more muted greens, browns and greys of the winter landscape.

A great thank you is afforded to everyone who volunteered their time and efforts to help make this project such a success!
