Arbor Vitae

'Arbor Vitae' is the Latin equivalent of the 'Tree of Life'. Following on from my project 'The Power of Plants', this sub-project  was inspired by the Norse Mythological tree Yggdrasil and the universal lore of plants in general.

The outcome of this project, was an artist's book, which was exhibited at the event 'Substance', held at Aspex Gallery in March 2018. The artist's book itself,  a wooden box contained an array of cellulosed printed bags, flora vials and a hand-carved leather bound, hand-stitched book. This book looked at a small selection of plants and herbs, more specifically, their medicinal/ magical uses and the lore behind them.
