Mending Season is a series of tiny sculptures fashioned from the artist’s own garden vegetables.
Green-thumbed artist Leah Gauthier often works with ephemeral materials, emphasizing the transient existence of nature’s many structures and forms. As each veggie sculpture lasts only a few hours, Gauthier is using her new Kickstarter project to fund a series of prints, capturing these momentary assemblages before they return to the soil.
Urban Air is an experimental bamboo forest high above a Los Angeles freeway.
Surrounded by concrete, bad drivers, and worse advertising, the LA commute feels like the ultimate environmental disconnect. Urban Air seeks to subvert that daily alienation — one billboard at a time. The idea is pretty simple: Take disused billboards, remove the commercial facade, and install a living, breathing cloud forest of bamboo.
Time to reclaim the asphalt jungle and score one for the trees — it’s our Project of the Day.

Urban Air seeks to subvert that daily alienation — one billboard at a time. The idea is pretty simple: Take disused billboards, remove the commercial facade, and install a living, breathing cloud forest of bamboo.
Glassman’s current Kickstarter project is raising funds to implement a pilot forest high above an LA freeway. The vision is to nurture a green takeover of billboards around the world, kickstarted by this first attempt at building a floating garden amid the asphalt jungle.
