About Branch Round

This ephemeral artwork was produced with natural materials found on location in a Surrey park. Moran arranged branches as an artistic intervention in public space and left them behind after photographing them. The photograph is printed on vinyl-mounted aluminum and affixed to the side of the washroom structure. The artwork speaks to the creation of community and the way that unique individuals come together to make an ordered whole.
