Daily Dose: Nest Homes

Add to TwitterPatrick Dougherty’s site-specific “twig art” installations can be found all over the world. He’s constructed over 200 of these swirling, organic works since the early 1980s. Many of them take on forms of buildings and resemble homes – with a bit of a twist. Each of his structures use hundreds of saplings and are constructed using primitive methods of building. Dougherty has taken his talents to various universities as well, conducting workshops with students and faculty. Below are images from his website:
