  1. Site 1 RPG Untitled Ikebana (Front), 2020, iris, spray-painted branches and reeds, wire and reflective container atop the parking garage, 2020, approx. 36 x 34 x 18”,

Rhizome Parking Garage is a web-based group exhibition of international artists. Each participant or group documented their work in a local parking garage of their choice using the space as a representative of and for the universal rhizomatic parking garage. I presented ikebana, painting, sumi-e to the local landscape creating concordance(s) between the art and the place. Both the work and the landscape were changed by the encounter becoming something more than they are separately.
