After a long winter, the bulbs on Sculpture Space grounds are finally poking up. In 2012 as part of my project Trace, 3,000 narcissus bulbs were planted on the sites of 5 former homes that used to inhabit Whitesboro Street in Utica, New York. For the first few years, the narcissus bloomed. However they were subsequently damaged by a an unseasonable spring cold snap. The foliage still marks the house sites, but not the flowers. In the fall of 2018, I replanted—with the assistance of JCA of Utica, 4 of the 5 tracings. The new tracings overlap with the old ones. Translucent Home (2008) sits in the background.
The flowers are also emerging on the slope of Translucent Home.
In 2017, I expanded the planting project into the neighborhood as part of Utica Tracings.
