For my BFA Senior Thesis project at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, I marked off 6 areas in different Chattanooga neighborhoods that could potentially be community gardens. I left the supplies necessary to make the garden a reality, then documented the ways that people interacted with the space. 

I wanted to experiment with the idea of ownership in public space. At what point or under what circumstances do people feel it is their right or even their responsibility to care for a physical space? Six months after I finished the project, I got the chance to revisit the lessons I learned in my talk at PechaKucha.
