WELCOME TO A FRAGMENTED GARDEN
A Fragmented Garden is Daniel Silva’s proposal for a different way to construct a garden. It is composed of 50 Nendo Dango seed units distributed around Tokyo and will use technology and algorithms to come together as a cohesive system. The garden will employ a new approach to seed dispersal - using collaborations and participants to distribute and house the Nendo Dango units. The network of participants will report on warmth, time and location of the plants that germinate from each of the units. The collected data will inform the creation of a system of artworks.
The work from A Fragmented Garden was exhibited in Tokyo as a site specific installation in May 2020.
