Art Garden

My wife is in an art exhibition at the United States Botanical Garden. The show's web presence is pretty weak, but a little birdie tells me it's a good show and worth a visit if your in the Washington D.C. area. It runs until October 12, 2009.

These are two pictures of the same project, but the lower one is from a previous show. Pictures only tell part of the story. The growing potatoes in the paper bags are supplying electricity to a transmitter in the foil covered furniture. The foil enhances the signal transmission of the aria Come Scoglio. You can't hear it unless you have a radio receiver. Coincidentally, this is her second project at a botanical garden; the first having been at the Berkshire Botanic Garden.

    Damn. Been a while.



If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
