The Botanical Nature of Architecture: Tallahassee
This project utilizes the plant press as a symbolic form, a representation of preservation and analysis. The structures that have been recreated are those that are located in or near the All Saints District of Tallahassee, FL–primarily punk/DIY spaces–that have been, currently are, or are at risk of being affected by gentrification in the area. The piece refers back to the arts/music community that the artist has only heard of in stories and experienced in the midst of "urban development".
