Typha

Co-Artist:
Pouya Khalili
The story of a place begins with its flora and fauna.
In Richmond, the Typha or bullrush, has ancient origins, existing in marshes long before the
presence of human inhabitants.

These plants follow riverbeds and streams and can be read as signifiers of water in landscape.
They are markers of the watery existence of the land that makes up the city of Richmond.
