The Garden of Forking Paths is an open exploration of the history of gardens. This multi-layered investigation and landscape installation, takes it name from the Borges story, "The Garden of Forking Paths?. The book uses the genre of the detective story?a genre that requires clue gathering and puzzle solving?in order to explore the way time branches into an infinite number of futures. Similarly the Garden project has been conceived of an Inescapable labyrinth or complex diagram of physical connections. The visitor is suggested to use the Garden Project as a laboratory to understand and experience the new physical collection of landscape interpretation. This 2000 sq ft installation will be along the Napa River and run by the Oxbow School of Art.
