"Rot: The Afterlife of Trees" at The Arts Center

Forest ecologist Dr. Mark Harmon of Oregon State University wanted his research in the study of tree decomposition to reach a much broader audience than just the scientific community. His solution was using visual, written and performing arts, through a unique collaboration among the Oregon State University Department of Forestry, H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest, OSU's Spring Creek Project and The Arts Center.
