Overview

Permanent installation at MTA 18th Ave on the D line Bensonhurst Brooklyn, NY.
Starting point for these images of fictional gardens are illustrations of plants of the three ethnic groups that live in that neighborhood, the Jewish, the Italian and the Chinese. At the same time they are talking about the perils of our actions and their effects on the environment.
