Plant Tags for Stop Signs

05.03.12 Marina Galperina

From the makers of immaculate cockroach memorial shrines, here’s some new work from the Carmichael Collective. For their latest street (suburb?) intervention, the Minneapolis-based group erected some Urban Plant Tags next to urban fixtures like stop signs, lamp posts and benches. Proper “care” instructions are provided. “Canine urination required” for fire hydrants. The “endangered species” of a mailboxes need to be fed with “adequately stamped objects” to be kept alive. A-ha. Ha. Good luck.
