Make Our Garden Grow
Size varies: Four mixed-media benches with LED lights.
LED lights, sandblasted laminated glass panels, aluminum channels, salvaged timbers
The salvaged timber of the benches embodies our time and place, human interventions past and present. The words of the poem, Make Our Garden Grow by Richard Wilbur from Leonard Bernstein’s operetta Candide, are carved into timbers and etched in Morse Code on glass panels illuminated with pulsing LED lights, lend to the mystery of coding and decoding the complexity of our time.
