The Survivors (2012) is a digital slide show consisting of 37 photographs, drawings, digital abstractions, and text. The piece explores the flora that emerges in abandoned parking lots through the Cleveland region, posing questions about the relationship between nature and our built environment. These mosses, flowers, and weeds are the plants that not only survive, but flourish amid concrete and asphalt. The Survivors was commissioned by the Artisphere in Arlington, Virginia, where it premiered in the exhibition“Beyond the Parking Lot: Change and Re-Assessment of our Modern Landscape.”
