Last week, my table and i created a spoon tree. None of us really wanted to take it home so we figured we could melt and destroy it. We wanted to make an environmental statement. The spoon tree is a literal representation of, well, a tree. Since the tree was made of plastic it was easy for us to destroy by simply spending a few minutes melting it with a heat gun. Very similarly normal trees growing in the the wild are easy to destroy with the simple use of an axe, chainsaw, etc. And with the destruction of trees comes the destruction of habitats and species. Melting our spoon tree represents this destruction.
