Migrants/Migrantes (Miami)

Presented in the window of a storefront, this moving image installation speaks to the understanding that most of earth’s flora and fauna are migrants by nature, and that the process of migration is a natural extension of the constant movement of our planet Earth. The installation consists of a botanical spa and therapeutic observational facility in which the artist attempts to root cuttings of live tropical plants outside of their native soil, as an homage to the process of “rooting” in a new environment as a migrant.
