Artist Eileen Roscina works with the Commerce City community to explore the intersection between industry and nature through a mural composed of organic and natural materials that form the industrial landscape of Commerce City. This mural installed at Anythink Commerce City. will celebrate growth, change and the vital history that seeds hold in shaping terrain. Community members will contribute to the mural by pressing flowers and contemplating what seeds can we plant for the future?
About the artist
Eileen Roscina is an artist, experimental filmmaker and naturalist. Through biomimicry and the study of biophilia, her work examines humans’ spiritual and social (dis)connection with nature and seeks to raise questions about realizing a radically different metaphoric mapping of time, space and our place in the world.
