Gladstone Grow Op / Ben Watt-Meyer / Crusher Run, Triple Mix & Bark Nuggets a.k.a. Rock, Dirt & Mulch
Ben Watt-Meyer is a landscape designer and artist based in Toronto. He is a graduate of the Master of Landscape Architecture program at the University of Toronto and is a co-founder of the interdisciplinary collective Urbanworm Design.
Rock, Dirt & Mulch is a sedimentary catalogue of three common construction materials of our everyday landscapes. Arranged in horizontal layers, they mimic both the strata of geological formations and the precision of technical construction details. This visual index of the overwhelming diversity of commercially available bulk products challenges the notion of rock, dirt and mulch as simple material categories.
GROW OP will be on public display at the Gladstone April 24 – 27, 2014
Curated by Victoria Taylor, and featuring 26 new projects, Grow Op 2014 is the Gladstone Hotel’s annual alternative landscape and urban design event, celebrating innovative ideas and conceptual responses to sustainable placemaking across a broad range of creative practices.
