“With Words as their Actions” in On Site

public memorial installation

Issue 36 of Stephanie White’s extraordinary On Site Review has just been published, and we’re proud to be part of it. This issue’s theme, Our Material Future, addresses points of intersection between the material world and the science of the climate crisis. On Site 36: 2020 asks the question, “What must we save and how?” PLANT’s Lisa Rapoport, in her essay, “Material Memory,” looks back on two PLANT landscape projects, Sweet Farm and Dublin Grounds of Remembrance, that promote engagement with the environment as a means of sustaining it. She answers the “What must we save?” question by describing how PLANT’s recent With Words as their Actions artwork for Ottawa’s Lyon Station preserves the memory of 19th-century women who preserved the history of the community founded as Bytown, at the time when it was about to change its name and become the nation’s capital.
