The Grow Melt Project was part of the The Late Show Gardens, a sustainable garden show held at Cornerstone Gardens in Sonoma, CA. Approximately, 20 x 40 feet overall, the garden was designed to provide a tangible human experience on the subject of climate change.
By drawing attention to the fact that climate change can dramatically alter small differences in topography, the Grow Melt Project references greater changes in our landscape. The garden was installed for three days as part of the Late Show Gardens, a ground breaking event heralded as the first sustainable garden show. Rather than a static artifact, the garden changed over the duration of the show through the use of ice as a building material.
