Landscape Abbreviated by New York-based artist Nova Jiang is a kinetic maze that is part garden, part machine. The rotating modular planters contain live moss collected from the sides of buildings, cracks in the pavement, subway grates and other urban nooks and crannies in New York City’s landscape. Controlled by a software program, the planters continuously change formation and form new maze patterns that force visitors to change course. Nova envisions this project "not as a classical labyrinth built to ensnare, but rather as an architectural abbreviation of grand ideas."
