INTERVIEW: We Talk to Artist Benjamin Jones About His Incredible Sustainable TreeHouse.

Some of us were lucky enough to have moms or dads build treehouses for us – for the rest of us, there’s Benjamin Jones . The artist recently brought his colorful TreeHouse made of sustainable materials to Governor’s Island in NYC for the annual Figment Festival and it was an instant hit with kids and adults alike! We wanted to know more about the inspiration behind the arboreal home’s recycled design so we caught up with Benjamin to ask him everything from where he sourced his supplies to what cool interactive art projects he’ll be hatching next. Read on to see what he shared with us – including the real reason he decided to go for building the treehouse (read: a girl)!
