“Living Fence” is a site-specific mixed media installation that combines the technologies of a sustainable “living wall” with public art in the context of the beautiful urban-infused nature of Brooklyn Botanic Garden in 2017.


Being a woman, an immigrant and a person who feels moral responsibility for climate change I don't think public art can be relevant without connecting to these important topics these days. I feel I must strengthen the voices for all these above mentioned issues with my public work.

My goal is to bring awareness to the water conservation project in an unusual artistic way and encourage audience to engage with art and their local community while learning more about sustainability. It is my hope that my work will help audiences connect to the environment in which they find themselves. I believe it is very important for art to play a prominent role in the definition and creation of public spaces, primarily because art encourages direct connection between people and their surroundings.

By incorporating plant life and other materials found in the local natural environment with graphic elements, my installation dissolves the barriers between private and public space, between the organic and inorganic elements of the urban landscape, and between nature and art.
