Roxy Paine's sculptural work examines how nature and technology collide in the contemporary landscape. One Hundred Foot Line is one of the artist’s Dendroids, a series of large-scale representations of trees that Paine constructs with the tools and materials of heavy industry. "Dendroid" - drawn from the Greek word for tree – recalls the futuristic concept of an "android," a synthetic organism. Paine's Dendroids attempt to observe and understand trees as a language governed by rules and structures. In this narrative, the trunk, which tapers skyward into a sleekly rendered line, extends above and beyond itself, presenting an awe-inspiring confrontation between the natural and the "man-made."
