Subaltern

An interesting work of art on display at Lang. An artist who spent time at a seed bank devoted to understanding the ways in which plants adapt to human-caused climate change and dislocation asked 200 people to name objects and living creatures that didn't go together, then represented them together on used Metro Cards, stitched together in the colors of the subway lines. I'm not sure how it all fits together (that may be the point) but it makes for an engaging work!
