Site-specific installation created in response to the “Muslim Ban” – a series of executive orders that banned nationals from several Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, including refugees fleeing genocide. Each flower in the composition has a relationship to countries affected by the travel bans, including official national flowers, ceremonial bouquets, native plants and images appropriated from Colonial-era postage stamps.
