"the Knowledge of our Field"


Listening to Lawns

On this website, you can interact with the project "the Knowledge of our Field."

This project takes "the lawn" as a site of critical inquiry. What societal anxieties convene in lawns? What are the ecological demands of lawn? What biological and social ecosystems are lawns a part of? How do lawns exist simultaneously as private and public spaces, and how does this space suggest questions about privacy and consent?

You can read more about the project.

"Green yards are deeply seated in the American ethos of the sanctity of the single-family home. This psychological attachment to lawns, however, results in significant environmental harms: conventional turfgrass is a non-native monocrop that contributes to a loss of biodiversity and typically requires vast amounts of water, pesticides, and gas-powered mowing."

Sarah B. Schindler, "Banning Lawns," The George Washington Law Review Vol. 82 (2014): 394.

Sourcing the Weeds

There are a ton of wonderful plants to be found in any given lawn.


As a part of this project, I created a Zine for my residency at Plantage Dok in Amsterdam.

Where next?

The "lawn kiosk" is not yet scheduled to land anywhere in the near future. Please check back in at a later date.

Alternatively, you can be in touch, and bring the kioks to a lawn near you.
