An interesting installation in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern, London, by Mexican artist Abraham Cruzvillegas.  Triangular raised beds – themselves raised on scaffolding and viewed from above, are filled with soil from parks and open spaces in and around London (including Buckingham Palace gardens and also RHS Wisley).  Nothing is planted in the beds and they are lit from above and will be watered for the 6 month duration of the exhibit to see what grows……  It opened in October 2015…… and some plants are growing…. it will be interesting to see how it looks by the end of the exhibit on April 3rd 2016.
