Flying Gardens of Maybe - eco/logic diagram
2012 - present
Where does it start, and where does it end? This diagram is a visual overview of the Flying Gardens of Maybe ecosystem. 1, 2, and 3 mark pivots points in the ecology of interruption among birds, plants, architecture, urban animals, volunteers, museums, biologists... The ancient and long-established ritual of migration of birds and the dispersal of seeds from the plants whose fruits they eat becomes tangled and re-routed in all so many ways.
Presented as a wall drawing at the Sullivan Galleries in Chicago, and as a mounted five-foot diameter didactic at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, this image provides a conceptual map to the distributed processes of the project and the varied actions, gestures, and actors within it.
