Crown Shyness is a phenomenon observed in some tree species, in which the crowns of  fully stocked trees do not touch each other, forming a canopy with channel-like gaps. Using  the phenomenon of crown shyness as a visual theme Navid created this 3-Dimensional site specific installation. The multilayered installation is fastened to the existing concrete wall on the underpass by City Hall. Each element of the installation was cut to shape and hand painted with the assistance of student’s of the Norfolk Emerging Leaders program.
