Plant Patch – Organic Parasites on CBS Street Columns
On the massive column of the CBS bus entrance bridge, above the busy Lewinsky street, a parasitic installation draws eyes in a place where people usually look down and walk fast.
A system of repetitive triangular shapes made of fabric leftovers, wood and a plastic bottle contains tropical plants that require little light and clean the air. Its watering system, resembling a root system, brings water from above, as a gentle gesture showing the massive flow of forces flowing down this massive concrete column, holding the bus viaduct above.
