Indirect was inspired by the shape of the tree. I saw it while I was out in the field and thought it looked like it was striking a pose.
A few days later, while I was looking at it, I thought it was interesting how a tree could grow like this. Why was it curved? What was it trying to get around? There were no obvious influences on its growth trajectory.
Now, whenever I look at it I question why it took such an indirect path to where it is today.
