Secret garden

secret-gardenThis is one of the city’s wasteland, which is located behind blue metal construction fence. This land is empty because the developer who bought the land left it alone after demolishing all the structures located there. Now this territory lives it’s own life for about a decade. Covered from people’s eyes, this “garden” gave birth to a new island of nature in the busy center of the city.

The installation is a version of hunter’s or guard tower made of old wood. Staying high above the territory full of weeds and American maple, it marks the land of expulsion. The tower could be an object of defense, build by the new rulers of the land. On the other side it could be a sacred building, where the tradition of initiation in this new forest, where people move to reborn.
