Sited in the yard at 1067 Pacific People (an art space operating out of a former auto body shop in Crown Heights, Brooklyn) this living sculpture is a testament to resilience and diversity of weedy life forms. The sculpture consists of a salvaged metal pipe, orange construction fencing, and an assortment of seeds and soil saved from last season’s Invasive Pigments garden. Echoing the central placement of a flag pole common in front of state and municipal buildings, rather than providing an enduring and iconic image of institutional power, the monument is meant to shift and change unpredictably in accordance with the philosophy of 1067 Pacific People.
