Urban Plaza Equivalent, 2006Sandbags, oil drums, wood, chain link fencing, weedsDimensions variable

Derived from seating arrangements in pubic spaces and plazas associated with commercial buildings in Manhattan, these four bench/planter structures are created from common construction and industrial materials. Rather than cultivating ornamental flowers and vines, these sculptures host weeds and indigenous plants, usurping urban public planning models by using the vernacular of construction sites and abandoned lots.
