city desert


A field of Sanseverias in a desolated urban landscape.

In cities of today we can find ourselfs in places which give us the feeling of being in some kind of desolated landscape such as a desert,
populated only by some lonely cacti standing miles away from each other. The issue however is not the absence of life, it is the way the place is being lived that makes it feel like a desert. It are places which are being skipped, places where no one has got his home or no one feels himself at home, places where everyone has ceased to take care of.

If a place can’t be a home to the people who are living it, it becomes a wound.. wounds need attention in order to avoid them to get infected and have a larger influence on the entier city.


City deserts we call them. By giving this place our Sanseverias we are not healing the wound, we are just giving the desert its cactus. It is like hiding the infected wound with a patch, it becomes less visable but underneath the wound keeps on growing worse.
