The Grey and the Green
Ever since the economic collapse of 2008, community gardens have developed and flourished in Dublin and many other cities and have transformed abandoned, derelict land sites into productive community areas in many urban neighbourhoods. During this time of economic recession and financial insecurity, community gardens and urban farms provide city people with the incentive and the opportunity to grow healthy food and with the opportunity to engage in satisfying and rewarding work. The visual contrasts between city and land appeal to me, and I am interested too in the struggle between social consciousness and economic imperative.
