“Reconfiguration of a tree” is a research project focused on Pinus Pinaster, a resinous tree harvested for its pitch. Studio thomas Vailly took a natural element, the Pinus Pinaster tree, ripped it apart – rearranging its elements into man made materials. The result is an abstraction of a tree, a black matter joining, coating, blending in and contrasting with pine wood.
In the light of the title of this project , the wood has been considered as a building stone. A room divider made from 350 wooden ‘bricks’, forms a sculptural wall in the space. The blocks are held together by the black pine resin, becoming the cement of the wall.
