The Roof Garden Commission by Pierre Huyghe. [In this piece the artist explores the transformation of cultural and biological systems through a dynamic gathering of components derived from the Museum's collection, architecture, and surroundings] Not my favorite roof garden installation. I think that the spontaneously sprouted weeds are the nicest features. Metropolitan Museum of Art
