The trees and the poets of San Diego

Ash, Beech, Cedar, …, Xenophon, Yonge, Zola: Trees and poets spread across the urban space, thus forming it and holding it together. Although it looks like a simple idea, the system of alphabetically ordered street names (as we often find it in the U.S.) indeed tells complex stories about the historical, current and even future developments of urban conglomerates.

“Trees and poets, citified [The urbanist’s alphabet]” is a research project by Lena Lapschina on urban structures, street life and visual user-interfaces of big cities. A solo exhibition at the Kaunas Photography Gallery assembles a cycle of twenty-six photographs.
