An early sample programe from the Snake Bark uncovered some fascinating finds by Clodagh Dooley. See below
Hassett was drawn in particular to Dooley’s beautiful images of the fungal fruiting body (pod like structure). See image below.
Other images taken by Hassett with a normal camera also inspired her to create the final artwork that is currently installed in the Snake Bark Tree. See below some of the first photographs taken by Hassett, which show some of the soma/ breathing holes of the tree.
Imagery of the brightly coloured clothing combinations worn by select sub cultures in Japan during the 1990’s also played a part in the selection of the materials and colours for this piece.
