Positive Division by Glen Farrelly – £995

For plant cells to divide, a new cell wall must be built to create two cells from one. The process of building a new cell wall to separate the dividing plant cell is called plant cytokinesis.
We need division to grow, with growth there is hope. Let’s protect our ecosystem and welcome those healthy divisions of life.
I work with reclaimed and storm fallen timber using an ancient Japanese technique called ‘Yakisugi’. This method preserves the wood – Yaki means to heat with fire, and sugi is cypress. By slightly charring the surface of the wood without combusting the whole piece, the wood becomes waterproof through the carbonisation and is thus more durable. It also protects against insects, as well as making the wood fire retardant. All my work aims to be as sustainable as possible and I will only use natural materials.
