|10’ columns x 3’ x 12’ planters and land|
|Mirror stainless steel, palm trees, irrigation system, galvanized metal support|

Two faceted, mirrored 10-foot columns reflect both the environment and adjacent palm trees, creating a kinetic, strobing visual effect.
Like many of Tzanetopoulos’ mirrored earthworks, these hand made mirrored towers reference a humorous take on pressing ecological issues, in this case, the paving over of green in the inner city -- and the need to ‘green’ the inner city. A grove is only a grove because it adds multiple reflections of what should be more present in inner city development.
