Moveable Garden is a landscape on the move, planted as a bermed plot covered with winter vegetation that is visually being pushed along by an earth-moving construction vehicle. Moveable Garden follows in the trail left by my previous garden-based installations, in particular Changing the Landscape (1991, Harbourfront Artists’ Gardens) and When the forest moves (1995, Toronto Sculpture Garden), contemplating the effects of human impact on nature through a cautionary but playful juxtaposition of plant material and constructed forms.
