About The Dream Tree
Local artist Todd Siler explores the connections among art, science, beauty, destruction and the human thought process. Todd Siler says, “The Dream Tree is a mosaic of motivational thought that inspires action: doing, living, and being. The 5th century Greek dramatist Sophocles once said, ‘A short saying often contains much wisdom.’ Such is this rare tree of life, which shows contrasts and connections between the philosophical and the practical, between the world of Sophocles and the world of Wal-Mart. Basically, this tree of humanity shows the fruits of our experiences and reflections over millennia.”
About The Process
MetaphormingTM, created by Siler, is a process that gives three-dimensional form to ideas that often lead to invention and creative connection.
