Marsh Zone 2000

This mobile, temporary project makes visible the tension between space for nature versus space for humans. Several parking spaces around the City of Fairfield are reserved for a small patch of marsh that travels around the city in a debris box.

Official city signs designate this valuable parking space for Cattails, Tule reeds and other native wetland plants only. The piece is a visual reminder of where Fairfield has been built but also engages people in a dialogue about the value of a native ecosystem in the context of building and running a city.
