Birds, bees and butterflies rely on the diversity of native plants in New York City. Those plants are also reliant on the birds, bees & butterflies to ensure their pollination and propagation. This installation is made up of representations of native birds, bees & butterflies. Each of the small sculptures is made of recycled paper embedded with the native seeds, Houstonia Longifolia. As the weather wears down the sculptures, the seeds will be dispersed. Just as in the natural system, these sculptural birds, bees and butterflies are part of the continued growth of native plants.
