Made of strips of ash glued together, the tapered ends of the various pieces appear to be the jagged ends of a broken tree.

Says Moronnoz, "The project functions like a sign or an omen. It features the paradox of the non-used, or even non usable, useful object and the ecological breakdowns incurred."
