"Veil of Consumption" mediates the harsh monumental architecture of Michael Graves's original garden entry with the organic presence and human scale of the Garden itself, both through its cascading form and color, and through the use of familiar materials generated by the surrounding population. A tapestry of cut-up and interlinked aluminum soda cans and plastic soda bottles filled with brightly dyed water that cascades down the back entrance stairs from the museum itself, the bottles refract colored light just as the nets of woven aluminum strips reflect it.
