Articulating the interrelationship of inner city built and natural environments, the human and non-human, The streets, our brushes is a homage to the street tree and public recognition of the need for more green space in our cities. The tree is absent. Instead structures referencing a tree protector and grate, and objects made from wool coloured with birch and oak dye, sit on a wooden pavement or ‘parquet rug’.

The streets, our brushes was made with thanks to James Healy Ltd. It was funded by an Arts Council Project Award 2018 and developed during a Dublin City Council Residential Residency supported by Galway City Council.
