Brooklyn Botanic Garden captured the early-autumn installation of its new Visitor Center’s living roof in 3,600 individual photographs. With a soundtrack by Brooklyn-based artist Terence Bernardo (terencebernardo.com), this time-lapse video condenses a month of soil dispersal, planting, watering, and a surprise snowfall into two minutes of gardening history.
