Branches and limbs that normally provide natural structure for native willows and Red Osier Dogwood were harvested…
to provide Structure for sculptures collectively titled- “Head Over Heels.” The installation is at Orenco Woods Nature Park in Hillsboro, Oregon.
During the Spring of 2017, artist Patrick Dougherty was assisted by a flock of 150 volunteers. Together, they spent over 1000 hours busy as birds during nesting season. With determination, they bent and twisted subtle sticks of all sizes into nest-like structures to create a wonderland of woodsy whimsies.
Although these creations are expected to last only 2-5 years, park visitors of all ages will enjoy the humor and playfulness these structures inspire.
