The teleplanter represents the reimmersion of life from a once-dead organic form.
The project consists of a 20” length of discarded telephone pole which found its way into the local reclamation dump, soil substrates, and several vibrant living sedums.
The telephone pole is a piece of western red cedar which once grew and flourished. Seeing that is was doomed to rot in a dump, I felt lke it was appropriate to give it a new purpose, and a new life.
To acomplish this I routed out a large planting basin on the top face to hold a generous amount of substrate and subums. Then, seeing the bare knots on the sides, I also routed out a series of interconnected internal chanels which provided a drainage pathway for the top planter and an opportunity to smaller sedums to poke out from the sides. waltercicack.wordpress.com
