Found oak tree log, cross section.
Woodland, South Mimms Herts

Continuing the theme of time travel – a London Dada mini series to co-incide with MKGallery’s
present exhibition “ How to Construct a Time Machine”  that links to our Work 404 from 2010
Dada Time Machine

Given that each of the concentric rings found in cross-sections of sawn trees marks one cycle of
the seasons – or one solar year, the above “Time Tunnel” represents around 40 years, or
a virtual peering back to the 1970s, the time when the tree was a mere sapling.

  1. Tree rings are fascinating. I’ve always been amused by those climate scientists who insist the medieval warm period did not happen because the tree rings found in bog oaks are not unusually wide.
    Too much science and not enough savvy there, trees will not put on much growth in the years when there is a hot, dry growing season.
    My son’s mate is a landscape gardener and tree surgeon, I have an order in with him for a slice from the next old tree he has to take down. Unfortunately or perhaps fortunately they only cut down those than die or become unsafe these days so I might have to wait a while.
