Uncultivated is an ongoing public art project consisting of geo-referenced photographs, a website, commercial displays, and pigment ink jet prints representing wild plants within urban landscapes over an extended period of time. Each printed image in the project is displayed with a QR code, which when scanned with a mobile device connects to its corresponding webpage containing detailed information on all the plants found in the image, their location, and the date it was taken. The public displays are designed to deepen awareness of the immediate surroundings of the viewer by displaying a photograph taken in close proximity. Started in Baltimore, MD in late 2010, the project has grown to include other cities, including Chicago, IL, New Orleans, LA, Brooklyn, NY and most recently, Washington, D.C. For the Georgetown exhibition, Cazabon photographed the landscape of the campus over a six-month period, focusing specifically on wild plants. Thirteen of these images were selected and added to the ongoing Uncultivated database and six were printed as large banners for display in Georgetown's new science building Regent's Hall. In the Spagnuolo Gallery, prints from other Uncultivated sites will be on display.
