Weir

 Weir
 Lee C. Imonen
 Galvanized steel, port oxford cedar

Artist's Statement:
Based on the traditional Native American fish trap used throughout the region, Weir is an abstraction of its original form. I recreated it as a reference to the human relationship with natural resources, and as a call to delicate balance. The Port Oxford Cedar used to create Weir was salvaged wood. Rather than cutting down a tree for artistic purposes, I made use of a cedar damaged by insects, and repurposed it for this work.
