"An urban epiphyte is a native plant you wear on your person. (urban ep-i-phyte, noun): A biological indicator that lives wholly with the architecture of human bodies as they move through space; as a means to provide a measure of local ecological health and symbiotic cohesion. Participants are given their own epiphyte, an adaptable pouch filled with soil, compost and a native plant, able to adhere to persons or objects. The idea is to attach the epiphyte to your person or belongings as you go about your daily routine. The project is recording the various narratives that occur within the placement of the epiphyte on yourself and in the varied spaces throughout the city."
