Boris and Kenny are my favorite artists with whom I went both to The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art and La Guardia high school of Music, Art and Performing Arts in New York City.  Their installations are absolutely stunning! The image below portrays one of their installations called “Below the Highline” and is a dying pocket park as they called it.

The installation took place in an old West Chelsea truck garage underneath the High Line Elevated train tracks.  Boris and Kenny filled the space with torn grass and logs from cut down trees, dead trees, dead leaves, branches, dirt, bushes, paint and stereo system with bird sounds.

They made similar installation in the Summit High School, NJ and they called it ” A Tree Falls in Summit”.  They created a forest classroom for students of the school to enjoy. Below are some picture details of this installation.
