Where once we stood on Scragged Oak Hill is an ongoing project using the remnants of felled trees to build 'forest figures' as an act of remembrance to the trees that have gone on to further use.
These figures are in influenced by folklore, old traditions and beliefs that encompass animistic thinking and can be thought of as the spirit-body of the trees that have now gone. They act as a symbolic resurrection and recognition of the change that has occurred.
The title refers to the location of the first figure - Scragged Oak Hill - where there used to be a grove of mature hemlock trees. Forest figure #1 is made from their branches.
