There is a fictional American Tale that when our first U.S. president, George Washington, was a young boy, he chopped down a cherry tree, an act considered destructive and disrespectful. But Washington told his father the truth, indicating his early capacity for moral judgment and bravery.

LOG looks at the dismembered system of dominance that America established with its own raw capital. It examines the fuel and prosperity of American wilderness stored within severed segments of chopped trees anticipating potential ruptures to its own constitution.

There is an ambivalence with being an American. There is a sense of belonging to a country so bountiful, so wildly true and saturated with promise and hope. Yet there is also insurmountable consumption and a reliance on fuel outside of our own means. As our structure breaks and folds, we must ask what America is really built on, what holds it up, and what really is the distinction between our founding father and our foundations.
