Ellie Irons is a PhD student at RPI and the resident artist for North Troy Art, Technology, and Urban Research in Ecology (NATURE) Lab. She’s the artist behind the “Lawn Re-Disturbance Laboratory,” taking place this year at 3333 6th AVE. The project removes turf to observe what dormant seeds underneath take the opportunity to grow.
Right next to Collard City Growers community garden, “Lawn Lab” is a living and evolving sculpture. Ellie has designed an audio tour that viewers can use to interact with the site. To listen, check out the project at lawnlab.org
