London Plane is part of the series Trees of UCC that respond to the diverse flora of the UCC arboretum, a collection of approximately 2,500 trees across the university grounds. The London Plane Plantanus x acerifolia is a hybrid between an American Sycamore and an Oriental Plane tree. It is widely planted in cities as it helps to absorb pollution and it also has a small root system. It can be widely seen in London as well as other european cities. With gestural brushstrokes and a bright palette, Dunne connects the trees together, binding them in colour and form to the shared campus that is their home.
