An immersive installation space composed of assemblages utilizing living houseplants and repurposed objects. The installation, called Debbie’s Inheritance, acts as an inviting space, attracting visitors to walk in and receive a rooting plant in exchange for sharing a memory or thought about a loved one deserving remembrance. The participants will either be audio recorded or write their memories on pieces of paper, which will later be used in composing a digital memory archive.
Los Angeles Walks will include this Rio Vistas Micro Grant Activation as part of its current walk series. They will design and build a temporary ramp or will improve the surface connecting the sidewalk to the river path at Newell or another street end. At the event, they will hold a short discussion in Elysian Valley, followed by a walk north along the river, to Rattlesnake park and back, noting issues of accessibility along the way.
