'Exploring the realms of growth structures, using pattern and symmetry to communicate the correlation between coral and trees. Exploiting the surface pattern of spalted hornbeam, mimicking the sporadic nature of growth within either organisms. The similarity between coral structures and trees is striking, both visually and biologically. Many species of coral expressing their age through growth rings, harder and softer rings apparent from warmer and colder years. The concept of polyps and leaves emulating similar functions or roles is one that could also be considered.'
'Neither coral or trees are thought to be intelligent but both are utterly brilliant.'
