Urban Scarecrow
2014
A scarecrow is a decoy or mannequin in the shape of a human. It is usually dressed in old clothes and placed in open fields to discourage birds such as crows or sparrows from disturbing and feeding on recently cast seed and growing crops.
'Urban Scarecrow’ dresses marginalized trees to make them look like humans; to discourage real estate businesses from appropriating any green spaces left in the cities.
