garden design

Want to help me with a project I’m doing? (Its seems like it might be your kind of thing)

I’ve got a site specific public art installation I am working on. It is in an abandoned lot under the CTA (I’m in chicago now.) First, I had a simple message: imagine. Next, I received 500 flowers that were donated because it is the end of the growing season and they failed to sell. The land has also failed to sell, so there is the theme of failed capitalism. But I want to inspire people, and do something with the failure.

So, I’ve made a garden design, I’ve split it up into a grid with 120 plots. I am inviting people to design a plot, I want to engage other people in this work. Sounds cool. More after the jump.
