Cacticity

The project

More than 900 cacti of one and the same species were placed in a grid for ‘Bilbao Jardin 2009’. They were planted in such a way that they formed an undulating carpet. What makes Cacticity so fascinating is that a relatively simple concept produced an image that is both abundant and extremely poetic.

Committee

‘Cacticity’ is landscape and sculpture rolled into one. More than 900 cacti ranging in height from 10 centimetres to 1 metre form an undulating carpet. During the festival Bilbao Jardín 09, this temporary installation was realised in front of the Museum of Fine Arts in Bilbao.
