Embodied in this project is the city of Palo Alto, its communities, their stories, and its ecology.
Inspired by the story of El Palo Alto (the tall pole, in Spanish), the oldest redwood tree in the area and the one that gives the city of Palo Alto its name, I created herbal remedies using the leaves from this legendary, ancient and iconic redwood tree and an extraction of the pigments was used to paint the mural in the gallery.
This installation will culminate in a community ritual, a tea ceremony with the public gathering around the artful preparation, presentation, and enjoyment of the El Palo Alto Redwood Tree tea.
