After You Leave (2007)

This three part project documents a silent struggle, the War of the Trees. Here we see the trees’ stoic refusal to submit to the dominating infrastructure- aggressive constriction and unremitting subjugation by the sidewalks, fences, buildings and decorative borders in this green battlezone. "After You Leave" is an online and ongoing project, merging animated video, drawing and digital photography to observe an overlooked resistance.

Part 1: Short animated video chapters documenting the struggle. Part 2: Photographic observations of the struggle, open for photo contributions.
Part 3: Map to locations of particularly resistant trees in one neighborhood.

There seems to be something quietly and very, very slowly pushing back: Vive La Treesistance!
