Production Park (2021)

    Production Park is a proposal for an urban public park. 5 types of tree common in industrial tree production move around the park on a conveyor belt, growing all the while. Park goers lounge and watch this drama unfold. It is a landscape where labor and leisure meet. Although humans grow- “produce”-specific trees to be instrumentalized, production is happening around us always. Sometimes we have to stop working and look around to see it.


Modeled Trees: Douglas Fir, Eucalyptus, Poplar, Western Cedar, White Oak
