My initial idea was to display the results on the wall but when it came to it, it didn't look as impressive as I had imagined. I therefore came up with this idea, to show the work as an installation and to create an inviting atmosphere which had an 'in progress' feel. This also allowed the viewer to interact with the piece. I think this turned out to be quite successful and I was pleased that many people sat down to draw their own trees during the private view.
What I have learnt from doing this exhibition is that I have to take more time to think about how I would like my work to be viewed, and to consider this while I am actually making it. Hopefully this experience will inform my current practice in a positive way as I want to incorporate this way of working into future work.
