  2. Ivy, nettles, trees of heaven by the tracks. In May 2014, Urban Plant Research (Sara Bouchard and Leslie Kuo) were guests at Berlin's Lichtenberg Studios, a unique artist residency in former East Berlin that focuses on artists making small interventions in public space. This a video diary of their week in Lichtenberg, with an improvised mandolin soundtrack by Sara. Thank you to Uwe Jonas, Intervention Berlin e.V., and the district of Lichtenberg for hosting us.

  4. On the closing day of Urban Plant Research's residency at Open Source Gallery in Brooklyn in August 2009, we hosted a Jam for the Plants.

    Friends and neighbors were invited to bring musical instruments to play or their houseplants to enjoy the music. Here are some of us playing Angel from Montgomery by John Prine. Musicians include Sara on mandolin, Dave on guitar, Kate on bassoon and a few other friends whose names I can't recall playing and enjoying among the plants.
