This is the prototype of an improvised conceptual device.

I am testing out ideas for a new occasional series.

Heavy Plant

Walk past a "Heavy Plant" warning and wonder vaguely if the trees thought it was for them; if whoever put it up had enough imagination to wish they were putting it on a tree or enough insight to see the irony that heavy plant machinery is commonly used in the removal of heavy plants.

Put yourself in the position of the trees, try to think like they might. The sign seems to suggest far more questions than it answers:

  • How heavy would a plant have to be to warrant its own sign?
  • Where on the transition from sapling to full tree might that point be?
  • Is a single tree enough for a sign or should a tree in search of a sign join a copse to up their chances?

Just Write!

Got lazy and disinterested. Took a year off. Missed it. Had something to say about that. This says it better.
