Title:
Spring Uprising

Author:
Monika Dutta and Jake Harries

Description:
Designed to be viewed from the street through glass frontage, the work exposes the tensions between metropolis and wilderness by highlighting the unfamiliarity of natural forms within the built environment. A sculptural and light installation complemented by a series of radical urban interventions, subvertising, and performative actions designed to bring the idea of wild food into an urban arena. Shadows and reflections from digitally fabricated forms originating from drawings of common edible weeds are animated within the space, using existing architectural features, to mirror the subtle and random movements of plants in their natural environment.
