Eat the City
Architectural models and various plant species
© 2008

Eat the City is an installation of architectural models planted out with edible and non-edible plants, seeds and seedlings. Eat the City invites the viewer to re-imagine the urban environment transformed by plants in ridiculous, beautiful and sometimes violent ways. Coupled with portraits of revolutionary gardeners, Eat the City suggests possible incursions of the domestic suburban garden on the CBD and its inhabitants.

Watch it grow over a 26 day period in the Platform cases.
