Forest & Stream

in collaboration

with Heidi Neilson

 

38 site specific installations,

placed on

October 25, 2009

along the length of

14th Street

in New York City

 

dimensions variable

 

For one day, at nearly 40 locations, color coded texts of powdered chalk describing various types of forest and water features were placed in the approximate location of the now urbanized sites. The texts function a form of historical marker, albeit one doomed to disappear as completely as the feature described.
