"Appropriation of Nature" is a site-specific installation created for the 2013 DUMBO Arts Festival out of reconstructed tree waste, creating a pixilated natural sculpture in a rural landscape. A dialogue between the natural and the industrial environment is created by using material that has been removed from nature and embedded within the urban landscape.


During 2012, Anthony Heinz May created site-specific installations for various parks and sculpture gardens including Cherry Hills Village in Denver, Colorado, Governor's Island, New York, Stone Quarry Hill Art Park in Cazenovia, New York, Helen Day Art Center in Stowe, Vermont and Annmarie Sculpture Garden in Solomons, Maryland. May's work is currently on exhibit at the Rube Goldberg's "Ghost Exhibition" at Columbia College's Glass Curtain Gallery in Chicago, Illionis and was at the Morris Museum's "Toying with Art" exhibit in Morristown, New Jersey. In 2013, Anthony was at Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts in Wyoming and will be participating in the EAF 2013 at Socrates Sculpture Park this summer in Long Island City, New York.
