The Flora of Bensonhurst, is composed of six sets of laminated glass windows, a permanent public artwork commissioned by NYC's Metropolitan Transit Authority's for the 71st Street Station on the D Line in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. Completed in 2012. These drawn images of plants were observed within a 6-block radius of the 71th Street D Line subway station. Reproduced in laminated glass, the results are an elegant and highly specific tribute to the flora of Bensonhurst, an echo of earliest, wildest Brooklyn. With a translucent quality, the windows function as a light box, illuminated on the station platform during daylight and dramatically visible from the street at night.
