Botanical portrait of unwanted plants
“Weeds may be ubiquitous, but hunting down the
quantity and variety for this artwork in urban and
sub-urban Copenhagen was no easy feat ... it required
“thinking” like one of them. Weeds are ingenious
shape-shifters; outlaws of the concrete jungle.
They thrive off human activity - in newly disturbed
landscapes and on nutrient-poor substrates.
Yet in our manicured city centers these tenacious
characters are far from welcome.
