Nesting Instinct – Installations by Jayson Fann
Jayson Fann’s spirit nests are scattered throughout California to support the Big Sur Spirit Garden’s numerous art and culture activites. It takes nearly a thousand man hours to complete each one. Jayson starts by judiciously pruning Eucalyptus trees of any extraneous branches. He can use other types of wood too, but Eucalyptus branches are best since they are durable as well as flexible. Creating a seemingly organic sculpure is a challenge Jayson overcomes with the help of a few, well-hidden counter sunk screws. A sturdy base and an access ladder is built separately. The whole thing is then assembled on site. As a final touch, a woven mat is added to the interior.
