This is a conceptual piece from a conceptual art shop in Holland. To me, this incorporates the idea obviously that chairs come from actual trees and wood but it could also be viewed as something else. This could be saying that people destroy things from the earth to make them into things to benefit themselves or to make their lives easier. However, it also could be saying that people are able to take something as simple and unimpressive as a log and transform it into something like a chair, which makes skill. Either way, I thought it was a really interesting idea.
