Hanging Gardens of Rock City, 1970


Photo collage, touched with green crayon, by Liliane Lijn, who 'imagined a utopia of green walkways across the rooftops of Manhattan'.
Found at the British Museum, see a larger version here.

Update: Thanks to reader Martha for letting me know that this is part of a series by Lijn, and can be seen on her website, which is full of interesting work.

I went to Lijn's site http://www.lilianelijn.com and that particular work is called Floating Gardens.

The collection is quite fascinating.

thanks, M

Tom Stoppard - Arcadia - A play

Árkádia (that's in Hungarian, I have seen the play directed by Tamás Ascher, Budapest, Katona József theatre... GREAT DIRECTION, unforgettable experience - I wish how I can copy here the link, but I can't...)

Arcadia - the title of the play in English...

a fascinating play about among other things about a very interesting garden, or rather about the people creating it, and then moving back and forth in time through the garden...

good luck with your garden history.. take a look at this play too, it might give you ideas... if about nothing else, but time traveling

Thanks for the comment...I've had Arcadia on my list to post about for a while. I've haven't seen it so it's nice to get a positive recommendation from someone who has. I'll try to get to it soon!
