Radicle Intervention is an ephemeral, place-based installation repopulating Popejoy Plaza on the University of New Mexico campus with native grasses.
Once upon a time, grama, dropseed, galleta, muhly and sacaton grasses thrived here. Using local mud and indigenous grass seed, Radicle Intervention repopulates this now concrete space with imagery of the native grass species integral to the Albuquerque area drylands ecosystem.
This project was created in collaboration with artist Rachel Zollinger. See more of her beautiful work at www.rachelzollingerart.com.
Presented in conjunction with the This Beautiful Earth day on arts and climate change at the University of New Mexico, March 21, 2018.
