Touch Wood at VanDusen Garden

One of our favourite backyards is VanDusen Garden. This summer the Garden is celebrating the culture of wood with over twenty sculptures and installations by ten BC artists. The exhibition is called Touch Wood and encourages the actual touching of wood, though there are a number of signs suggesting otherwise.

The installations vary considerably, from bird houses to flying sea creatures.

There are several variations on the theme of community and gatherings of human-like creatures.

Amidst the beauty of the gardens the perception and experience of the art changes with the light and the weather, and with the vegetation itself.
