Revival Field by Mel Chin began as a conceptual artwork with the intent to cleanse industrial contamination from affected soil with plants. Seeking to sculpt the site’s ecology, scientific analysis of biomass samples from the field confirmed the potential of “Green Remediation” as an on-site, low-tech alternative to current costly and unsatisfactory remediation methods.
