Urban Forest Project
Commission of a street banner for The Urban Forest Project, an initiative by Worldstudio, AIGANY, and the Times Square Alliance. Participants were asked to use a tree as a metaphor for sustainability. At the close of the exhibition, banners were recycled into totebags and auctioned off to raise money for environmental causes. After the initial NYC debut in 2006, Worldstudio continued the project in cities around the globe.
