There are two methods that artist Keiko Miyamori has used repeatedly in her artistic expression. Frottage, or tree rubbings, is one such work which is the emblematic transfer from trees to materialistic objects. By using washi paper and charcoal she is able to transport the vigor of nature to various inanimate objects such as pianos, typewriters and other materialistic objects. The other method is the usage of tree roots, which are fused inside large resin blocks of various sizes. This sparks viewers' imaginations, making them ask questions like what it feels to transfer energy from nature to some place else. This video is a visual expression of how trees become a touchstone of well being and healing, and how its transfer can help unify spaces.
