Did you know trees communicate through underground networks of roots and fungus? Visit this woman-made forest of interconnected, neuron-like, steel forms that rise to support bulbs, the leaf canopy. Each bulb is enveloped in found materials and illuminated, like fireflies who express through their flicker. Hear "Whispers in the Grove".
"Whispers in the Grove" is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by LMCC.
