study for proposed garden in Chinatown, New York, NY
13 x 13 inches
In Garden Where the Wild Grass Obscures the True Pearl, the intention was to employ design principles with cultural sensitivity empathetic to the eventual users of the park, in this case, the ethnic Chinese inhabitants. Chin consulted and collaborated with Thay Boi Trung and Sarah Rossbach for proper application of feng shui. This drawing, along with Origin and Obscurity Revealed and Aligned, was presented in Public Art in China Town at the Asian American Arts Centre; they are some of the only remaining documents of this concept.
