Out in the middle of Regent's Park there is a new art gallery, up in the trees. The Treehouse Gallery has been made out of donated and found wood, and sits up in the trees held up by cables with more temporary buildings down below. In this one there are bookshelves within and the young woman who conceived this idea sits binding bark to the book spines, creating an inside out tree.
Down below, and in another treehouse, people are binding willow and making more geodesic structures. An older man was working hard making a larger dome to act as a roof on one of the structures. We talked about living in the open and how the best homes are womblike. He had reached this conclusion when he spent time investigating tepees in America. He now lives in a handmade home, like these, in South London, hidden from officialdom and prying eyes as far as I could make out. I'm glad there's space for him.
You can visit and play at the Treehouse Gallery until 5th September.
