Mitsuru Koga Copper Wire Trees #1 - #6, 2023
Intricately woven wire trees made by Japanese artist, Mitsuru Koga, made from copper wiring found inside electrical cable cord. Koga untangles the wires, then twists them into the shape of a rooted tree. Each tree is held inside a cylindrical glass case with lid.
Each tree is one-of-a-kind and made by hand.
Misturu Koga (b. 1980), based in Kanagawa prefecture, Japan, Koga has the ability to infuse life into seemingly mundane materials, and transforms them into objects of art. These transformations are Koga’s commitment to exploring the delicate relationship between man and object, man and nature. His recent studio visit can be found here.
