‘not red but green’ comprises a natural, undulating terrain, spilling out from the entrance doorframe and pressing up against the surrounding windows and walls. lush vegetation floods in every direction, forming a hilly landscape that beckons an instinctual audience participation, although prohibited. the site-specificity of the installation allows it to grow and develop in size and form, and — by placing the mass of organic matter within the context of an indoor gallery — changes the perception of the natural world for the viewer.
a bright green cascade of grass spills out from the gallery walls
the landscape sweeps and swerves throughout the space
the hilly expanse beckons interaction, yet remains off limits for public participation
the green grass grows and develops with the passage of time
