Farmlab's Latest Hit

What's that potted Merc doing next to the Santa Monica MoA?
"Farmlab's latest Junker Garden, a transformed 1990 Mercedes Benz 300s planted with Australian tree ferns and irrigated by a misting system, joins a long list of once-were and still-are vehicles that combine automating with agriculture to produce relevant contemporary sculpture" therefore exhibited at the SMMoA. "The Gardens are a result of Farmlab's ongoing project to generate viable urban agricultural models that are not dependent on land ownership, an effort inspired by the 2006 eviction of the nearby South Central Farmers." More on Farmlab's project here.
