GESTO HEROICO

Sculpture proposal for the City of Musashino, Japan. The proyect consisted in choosing a dead still standing tree to be covered with chewed gum. The pieces of gum would have been provided by the children of the local school. The project was intially selected by an art committee and finally rejected by the city officials. According to their standarts it did not have "a good and cleaning image for the city". In the meantime a small and semi modernist version of the project was created in Los Angeles. The work was destroyed three years later.
