Surveyor's tape

A level line was surveyed in a forest near the artist’s studio. Pink surveyor’s tape was wrapped around each tree trunk to the height of sea level, creating a wedge of pink in the forest. This wedge of color shows 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.
