Green Suits Your City

Photographs to spur inspiration for the greening of our cities ...

This participatory photography project infuses embodied creativity into the greening of our cities. As part of this exhibit, all are invited to check out a green suit with a leafy sash and submit a photograph of themselves or a friend in some iconic place in their city or any city. This interactive project is design to engage the participation of a wider constituency in the greening of our cities. Placing actual bodies in service of this vision marks the commitment to joyful acts that will inspire action on behalf of environmental resilience. Sometimes it takes a literal representation of an idea to make it real. Both the process of taking the photos and the photographs themselves spark conversation, and are a part of my ongoing effort to infuse embodied fun and broad engagement in resilience planning.
