Anne Percoco and Ellie Irons

Next Epoch Seed Library catalogues the seeds of local weeds that grow on and around the Grand Concourse, creating an index of species that thrive in the dense and difficult urban environments constructed by humans. Merging built and natural environments, the work questions planned versus spontaneous growth and encourages closer examination of details that are often overlooked or marginalized.
