Transplant is a collaborative exchange between artist and curator. The artist has planted anise and mint seeds, herbs with medicinal and culinary uses, inside a 6 x 6 inch box filled with potting soil. The health and success of the work depends on the frequency and diligence with which the curator waters the soil and cultivates the seeds. Upon the conclusion of the exhibition, artist and curator will remove the work from the gallery and transplant it to a separate venue.
