Dennis Lin Preserves Nature for Everyone to See with No. 1-60

Artist Dennis Lin rescued a maple tree from a mill (well, if you can call it rescued...) and turned it into an art exhibit. No, the tree's definitely not rescued, but it has been kept from a life as multiple pieces of furniture.

Dennis Lin took the old tree, divided it into 60 sections, and has preserved it for people to observe and study. He titled the piece No. 1-60.

The features of the tree are amazing, and it's hard to imagine the natural complexity being erased by a furniture mill. Dennis Lin's No. 1-60 was photographed by Derek Flack.
