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.

Ten cypress trees chained and padlocked in a circle around a LA Times newspaper box for the Washington Boulevard Art Concert, LA, CA on October 13, 2009 protesting the use of paper.
