Home(-) and Garden is an installation by Ronen Gamil combining a series of aluminum can-clad miniature tents evocative of homeless encampments and surrounded by screening vegetation—a socially produced landscape. The work connects New York’s thriving luxury real-estate market with broader urban planning issues, and the active role that these factors play in generating and perpetuating chronic homelessness.
