Art: Gyre by Artist Caroline Lassovszky Baker
This painting illustrates the slow growth of roots and a tree's interaction with its immediate environment .  I observed the exposed roots above ground of beech trees at least a century old.  The very slow spiral motion of the roots created these little pockets or gyres that would trap all sorts of organic and inorganic debris to be subsequently broken down and taken up by the tree as nutrients or poison depending on what was trapped therein.  I lived near an interstate highway so it was not unheard of to find bits of plastic or other human generated "kipple" trapped in the spaces corralled by the roots along with organic matter.  Much of the organic material was from the tree itself: leaf particles, burr pieces and bud scales.
