Portable Observatories

2009 – 2015

Using a modified newsstand design, this exhibit distributed pocket-sized cards that provided taxonomic guides to heighten observation in this unique urban landscape. Topics included plants that colonize the tops of pier pilings, the plumage phases of gulls, and lichen species living on parking lot bollards.
