This piece brings together images of culturally specific plants from disparate locations that reflect the eclectic neighborhood. The composition of this virtual garden takes on a beautiful patterning that oscillates between representation and abstraction. Using photographs of various plants, the images mounted to the 8-story high elevator tower are formed by punching angled “pixels” out of an aluminum panel. The appearance of the images shifts in relation to the light and the viewer’s position, creating a visually dynamic surface. The idea of the garden serves not just in adding beauty but also contributes to the sense of home. This virtual garden will represent both what has been brought from other places, as well as the mixing and exchange of cultures that characterizes the neighborhood.
