Grant Park, Chicago, IL

Second Nature incorporates live text growing through artificial turf panels accompanied by the classic icon of domestic shelter a house. The house formed of chain link affords a view in and through, though cannot be physically entered, suggesting our attempt to mediate between the inside and the outside. The text second nature is home references second nature as a landscape of mad made elements introduced into the world to make nature habitable.
