The inextricable link between people and ecology only increases the need to broaden the investigative lens. Join us as we explore the integration of “ecology-based” design with “people-based” factors, including the lingering effects of historic land use and the need to accommodate diverse cultural perspectives on the meaning of “ecology”.

(Re)place: a Sculptural Installation at California Botanic Garden

(Re)place is a collaboration between artist Brandon Lomax and the California Botanic Garden’s past, present and future. Sculptural works will be shown at various stages of completion from fully-fired clay works that are as durable as stone as well as unfired works that are more vulnerable to the weather and elements of the Botanic Gardens. With guidance from the garden’s horticultural specialists, Lomax embedded some works with native plant species. Throughout the duration of the exhibit, unfired clay works will disintegrate and rejoin the soil, their once solid forms replaced by new plant species.
