Urban Oasis: Nature in Transit
Natalie Collette Wood

Urban Oasis: Nature in Transit seeks to redefine urban spaces, particularly within transit areas like the MTA, by incorporating the adaptive and enchanting qualities of nature. The installation merges an abandoned living room with natural materials, becoming a symbol of resilience in the urban landscape. Through this integration, Urban Oasis not only enhances the surroundings but also celebrates the vitality of the diverse communities within these dynamic urban environments.
