ARC Alternative Christmas Tree

by Chantal

At the beginning of this month I installed my design for ARC‘s “alternative Christmas tree” in ASPEX gallery, Portsmouth. The tree is called Desire and is on show during December. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get a decent image of the full tree – its ended up completely lost against the detail of the brick wall. I promise it looks better in reality!
