Tree Street Art

Tree Street Art

I made this in class when we were challenged to design a piece of street art. I made a tree with its roots extending to the sidewalk because I wanted to create something that incorporated more than just the wall. I have a great interest in pixel-based art, so the tree looks like something that you would find in Minecraft. I drew a tree specifically because I feel like a lot of places on campus look “dead,” and street art featuring a tree would liven things up quite a bit.

John Cage

John Cage is a sound artist. He composes many “different” pieces than one would normally expect. For example, is piece 4’33” is comprised of four minutes and thirty-three seconds of silence. It is intended for the audience to hear the noises around them. It bears a striking resemblance to John Denver’s “The Ballad of Richard Nixon.”
