Paradise re-made is both a sculpture and a participatory artwork that becomes a field, spreading out across the city of Kaliningrad like a landscape. It moves away from the object crafted by the artist and becomes whole only through the desire of the participants. The windows of the abandoned tower are adorned with blooming flower pots. In the yard of the tower, the audience is invited to take home a plant from a table of flowering plants, and is asked to document its growth/bloom over the summer months, sharing via the web. Paradise re-made merges the historic site, artwork, and audience participation into a shared public performance.
