City dwellers wander over asphalt and live behind glass. Our urban spaces
try to dominate and banish nature; our senses are overwhelmed by the sounds,
sights and smells of our own economic and cultural machinery.
The ultimate tool of resistance in the battle to reclaim urban space? Mother
nature, herself. This summer, let place jamming run wild.
Let them see green. Create physical space where nature can re-enter our
perception. Look around you - there are potential targets everywhere. In the
concrete jungle there are nooks and crannies waiting to be planted, there
are rolling lawns crying out for wildflowers.
