Well folks, the Impact Festival in Kitchener-Waterloo is over, and with it another successful planting of The PoeTree. For those that missed it, the tree was up from September 27th to the 30th at the historic Schneider Haus in downtown Kitchener.

In other news, designs for PoeTree Mk II are coming along nicely! As I've stated, the plan is that next year I'll put out a tree that last a total of three weeks without any intervention on my part, a tree that can withstand the elements and anything else that might get thrown at it. In truth, this is the part of the process I love the most, the idea-making, the imagining. Here's what I imagine PoeTree Mk. II looking like right now:
Stay tuned for more!
