I transformed the pages of a blank sketchbook through cutting. The shapes were based on my observations of the flaking layers of bark found on the mature London plane trees (Platanus × acerifolia) growing in Hackney Downs, London, during 2008. The book was on temporary display at the final show of the Art & Design in Education PGCE at the Institute of Education, London.
