Sculptor Mel Chin explores ways that art can provoke greater social awareness and responsibility. His interest in the environment has led him to collaborate with scientists and government agencies to create work that transcends traditional sculpture. In 1990 he began a lengthy residency at the Walker Art Center to create an installation titled Revival Field: Projection & Procedure. He worked with scientists to design gardens of hyperaccumulators–plants that can draw heavy metals from contaminated soil. The site of an old landfill near downtown St. Paul, Minnesota, was selected. The contaminated earth was enclosed with a chain-link fence and divided by paths that form an X. The project’s boundaries were marked by a square. Chin conceived of these overlays as a target, a metaphorical reference to the work’s pinpoint cleanup. The divisions were also functional, separating different varieties of plants from each other for study. ( Source : http://collections.walkerart.org )

This is the landscape for a huge library building emerged in the  pastoral area. Horizontal elements; the row of Quercus along the drive  and a linear earthwork, anchor the volume of the building to the  landscape, while they provide the structure of the garden configuration.  Three gardens, west, north, and east garden, surrounding the library,  are characterized by the relationship between two major landscape  elements: pathway and earthgrade. In the west garden, a linear walkway  ascending along the slope of long earthwork configutrates a strong  foreground against the mountain Nogou Hakusan. In the south, the same  linear walkway plays with a series of gentle mounds and provides a kind  of picturesque scene to the main reading room. Then, in the east, the  relationship between the walk-way and earthwork is more intimate. A maze  distorted on a large mounds creates a surrealistic scene as well as the  playful place. Another element characterizing gardens is the letter.  The last letters of different alphabets in the world are curved here and  there on the linear walkway. Tree names are printed on the seatwalls  set along the walkway in the clump. These may echo with the literal  world of the library. ( http://sciencelinks.jp )
