On one side the Mylar lined troughs reflect and absorb the rising light. The opposite side, where the Simi cylinder grass columns “lie in rest” and suggests a quiescent life form. Grass, Mylar, soil, cardboard. 24’ x 24’ x 12”h

The sculpture presents three life size “figurative planters” that have grass growing in the horizontal troughs that fill each shape from bottom to top.
