"The living collection" is a phrase that describes the zoos, botanical gardens, and museums of the city. These places, made of tiny creatures and organisms, have inspired a sense of wonder and deep mystery in the way they collectively function to create a balanced ecosystem. The Living Collection aims to build an ecosystem of its own—one in which each member activates compositional material, learns to find a center within multiple relationships, and creates new forms and cycles as it unfolds.
