Urban Plant Research is my ongoing collaboration with Sara Bouchard. In August 2007, we installed a temporary neighborhood plant discussion center at Open Source Gallery, a community gallery in South Slope, Brooklyn.
As artists-in-residence at Open Source, we hosted visiting neighbors during regular open hours and many participatory events. Neighbors young and old joined us in exploring, documenting, tasting, and singing to the plants in the neighborhood. While doing so, we discussed urban gardening, city trees, edible weeds, and life for plants and humans in the city.
