A live grass sculpture installed at VanDusen Botanical Garden pertaining to the idea of culture and Horticulture. The grass allowed to grow wild and dye back of it's own accord in sharp contrast to the manicured lawns of the formal garden.
Seeds of Culture
Grass seeds planted in the letter-shaped wooden moulds.
Based on the idea of the early European gardens as a manifestation of wealth and high breeding.
Towards the Sun
The planters are on an angle but the shoots aim towards the sun.
A thick growth after several weeks of planting.
The edges are no longer crisp as the long grass tendrils cross over the lines of containment.
The uncut grass continues to grow into a lush tangle of green.
A mix of yellow and green, old and new.
Fall of Culture
The grass begins to dye back as the leaves turn color.
