    Invasive plant art installation by Mimi Kato at the Cleveland Metroparks North Chagrin Reservation

    Retro-Reflections on Sculpting Nature. Mimi Kato. 2013. Site specific installation at Cleveland Metroparks North Chagrin Reservation

    This Friday, October 18th at 6:30 pm, SPACES World Artist Program (SWAP) artist and current Creative Workforce Fellow, Mimi Kato and the Cleveland Metroparks’ Invasive Plants Coordinator, Jennifer Hillmer, invite you to the North Chagrin Reservation for the last chance to see Retro-Reflections on Sculpting Nature, a site-specific installation about invasive plants control.

    The artist advises viewers to bring a flashlight in order to see thousands of reflectors, made from retro-reflective tape donated by 3M. Each marks an individual plant laboriously cut and treated with herbicide by the Cleveland Metroparks Invasive Plant crew in a single day. If visitors hold their flashlight at eye level then all of the light is reflected directly back to their eyes. The glimmering green installation shines on the often invisible battle for survival between plants. In addition to catching a glimpse of the ephemeral installation Kato and Hilllmer will give a talk about invasive plants in the region. Following the lecture Kato will lead a night-time tour of the installation.
