Artist Dave Rittinger has proposed a public art installation in North Philadelphia city park involving giant stationery. Entitled ‘Color Pencil Tree’, the branches morph into large, roughly hewn coloured pencils.

Says Rittinger, “My work is often playful, colorful and incorporates a sort of metaphorical blending of objects and function, so the fact that pencils are made of trees just made perfect sense. I really liked the idea of morphing the raw material into an embodiment of a manufactured product at this exaggerated scale.”
