Bird in Flight Prize ‘19 Finalist: A Tree Grows In
Sinziana Velicescu, USA
“A Tree Grows In” is an observation of flora growing in unusual urban environments. Often they are curious landscaping choices intended to beautify otherwise bland industrial or commercial spaces.
At the intersection of the natural and manmade, the plants seem to find their own unique personalities against the constraints of the built environment, overgrown and overtaking a space that was once defined for them – reminding us that nature cannot be controlled no matter how much we try to intervene.
