Emerald Necklace

 

Part One of the "Human Nature" series

Nature, Planned.

A presentation of contiguous landscapes that wind around Boston and Brookline, MA, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted to create an aesthetically pleasing environment within the city. This monument-garden serves as an ostensibly permanent nineteenth century art exhibition promoting a romantic philosophy that positions “natural” elements as spiritual commodities, and furthers the Western notion that nature exists in service to humanity, subject to its aesthetic designs and principles.
