Conversation, Thunderbird Park, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, 2009

Man has always made gods out of nature. Indians who once lived in British Columbia carved this totem pole a religious symbol out of what once was a living tree. It stands in a park full of totem poles, and full of living trees as well. I used my frame to pair one of them with this pole. It is almost as if they are having a conversation.

You are right. If it's wood doing the talking here, we've got to include the wooden fence. (Actually, it the exterior wall of a reproduction of an Indian Long House.)

I see three participants: the wooden totem pole, the tree, and the wooden fence like an audience. The green grass and leaves make me think it's a "lively" conversation.
