The Portable Forest are potted plants that can travel for shows, events and
happenings inside and outside. Typically they are shown interacting with the space they are in or traveling
metaphorically if not physically.
The Portable Forest Arroyo Seco Trees were installed as a part of Nicole Antebi and Enid Baxter Blader's collaborative work on Water in California at The Armory Center for the Arts. Six indigenous trees to the Arroyo Seco were installed with a rain barrel timer system and grow lights for the four month duration of the exhibition. Amy Blount Lay created work involving migrating seals which integrated into the Portable Forest trees.
The tree pictured below on the far left is a sycamore offspring from the Rose Bowl tree in Joel Tauber's artwork "Sick-Amour". Bank got this tree for free from the Theodore Payne Foundation if she agreed to be a part of Tauber's artwork tracking it's planted location.
