VERTICAL GARDEN – CANADIAN THISTLE – A PROHIBITED PLANT IN NYC.
The Canadian Thistle is a prohibited plant in New York State because of its invasiveness. The propagation, transport, and sale of this plant are prohibited by law. The term ’invasive’ describes plants which are considered as not natural residents. Invasive plants provide counter play to human control. The work is inspired by concepts like borders and control in relation to nature. Through studies the plant has been fractalized and made into a geometric wall scenery.
