This piece is made of pink wire, which is twisted and knotted to form a shallow relief on the surface of the railroad grates that are located in this grassy median. The textured relief may bring to mind flowers sprouting through the metal grates shag carpet or artificial turf. It is arranged to resemble the image of the train tracks below and draws our attention to the long underground tunnel beneath our feet. The work makes a connection between the vibrant plant life of the park and the massive industrial substructure of the city with which it shares its home.
