UrbanVines: nature meets city

I have an image of ivy growing on a crumbling concrete wall in my studio. I love the image of nature connecting with the built world; constant change and transformation happening on different time scales. I often circle back around to 'how do I grow ivy on a concrete wall?' Working on the installation plan for a temporary street intersection mural brought me back to cement board as a gorgeous textured canvas perfect for my work in glass.
