…the Garden Grows : Old-Growth Forest and Vine
Solo exhibition at Dominican University
Salvaged mixed materials discarded by retailers
Bamboo room is 12′ x 12′ x 9′
Vine is 8′ x 8′ x 6″
Created from the bi-products of our buy-product society …the Garden Grows utilizes the waste-stream generated from our consumer culture to feed our insatiable desire for new.
…the Garden Grows : Old Growth Forest specifically addresses the deforestation resulting from consumption. We destroy a living organism that makes oxygen, stores carbon, feeds itself, functions as a reservoir for water, and reproduces itself to make a cardboard box. The exhibition also included a bamboo forest in the third gallery.
