Enduring Legacy

The brief was to create a sign / sculpture for St Wilfrid’s Hospice which recognised and encourages legacy donations to fund their amazing work. The sculpture is set in a newly planted glade of silver birch trees.

The idea for this piece came when I discovered some Sawfly larvae on one of the birch trees, feeding in Busby Berkeley style synchronicity. I imagined being able to programme them like a drone swarm, to nibble the interstices between the veins of the leaf to create the lettering for the sign.
