The Tree Project

Posted in Uncategorized by Audrey Tran on June 25, 2009

Hiroshi Sunairi has been asking dozens of participants from  across the world to plant Hibaku seeds for his latest art piece, titled, Tree Project. Hibaku seeds come from trees that miraculously survived the atomic bomb in Hiroshima 60 years ago.  For the artist, this project is about sharing “the pleasure of growing plants,” with those who are interested. To participate, anyone can simply email the artist directly at treeprojects@gmail.com.

The Tree Project blog documents the sprouts’ progress –from Sunairi’s distribution of the seeds, to emerging sprouts in the care of participants. Visit the site to hear beautiful stories revolving around theses seeds and new pictures of the developing trees.  I have also been recruited by Hiroshi for this piece, and last week, my seedling finally made its way out of the soil.

What name should I give it?

What name should I give it?

This specific plant is a from the Persimmon tree and has a unique way of sprouting at the neck for several days.

Sunairi will exhibit documentation of the seeds’ growth along with the young seedlings in a show at the NY Horticultural Society next December.
