comments: this sculpture is made from post-consumer tins that have been cut into "blades" of grass. the piece measures 9' x 9' and is made with over 32,000 individual blades. harriete works primarily with recycled materials for her art. the message here is that the perfect lawn is achieved at the expense of time, natural resources and money while also degrading the environment. it's a powerful piece with an equally powerful message.
