FLOATING, LIVING
CARPET SCULPTURE

This undulating field of green
completely fills the 45-by-50 foot
interior courtyard of the
Contemporary Art Museum in St. Louis,
providing viewers with a lush, living
natural experience.

Green Varnish was installed last month by
Nomad Studio (landscape architects) 
as a living installation, comprised by
thousands of tiny succulents,
and appears to float like a blanket
being unfurled against the city backdrop.

The installation receives natural sunlight
and normal rainfall, which in St. Louis
has been plentiful.
It grows (and flowers) on a bed of rocky soil
and a sandwich of permeable woven substrate. 

The installation will be on view through
mid September, and is free to the public.
