Spring Mills, PA
A level line was surveyed in a forest at the artist studio, marking an exact height above sea level. Pink surveyors flagging tape was wrapped around each tree trunk to the height of the level, creating a wedge of pink in the forest. Trees low on the slope having many feet of pink on their trunks, while tree on the top of the hill had a minimum. This wedge of color in the forest showed the water level if the forest were flooded by rising sea level. The top edge aligns with the distant horizon, an unexpected phenomenon while creating the slope registration.
