Juanli Carrión – OSS#02: Brooklyn
OSS#02 is an intervention in the form of geopolitical garden where plant species represent social groups to materialize human interaction.
OSS#02 is the fourth of a series of interventions in the form of geopolitical gardens where plant species represent social groups and human interaction. The creation of the garden is based upon a series of video interviews in which plants are selected by interviewees and placed according to their real-life physical, political or emotional locations within their community.
For several months the installation functions as a community garden hosting workshops. OSS#02 uses Brooklyn and its recent history of immigration as its geopolitical parameters. The outcome of OSS is an informed discussion generated by visitors and participants about local community interactions and coexistence.
