using a combination of polystyrene and resin, lausanne-based artist vincent kohler has developed ‘billon’ – a sculpture that demonstrates an exploded view of the inner workings of a tree. sectioned into various arrangements, the composition highlights the several different cuts of lumber – including the center pith and other vertical and flat grain pieces.
