Chicago Phone Tree

Unwanted phone books were collected from doorsteps in our neighborhood in Chicago. Collaborator Jason Friedes transformed phone books into block planters and Tara Morton pulped the paper and cast it into nesting pots. Local plants and seeds were then placed into the planters and delivered back to the doorsteps they were initially taken from as a gesture of giving back. Multiples were dropped off at each doorstep to encourage a passing-on of the gift, to reference a phone tree chain.
