PETAL DROP LA (02)
MAY 2016

Jacarandas are an iconic street tree in LA: entire neighborhoods turn purple in May. The bloom is a temporal sign in a city often derided for having no seasons. People love them for their beauty and hate them for their mess. Installed overnight, the vivid purple flowers (over two shipping containers’ worth) seeped into the city like some surprising, ubiquitous raw material.
