Published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Lee Mingwei: The Moving Garden' at the Brooklyn Museum from October 2011 to January 2012.

'The Moving Garden comprises a forty-five-foot-long granite table with one hundred freshly cut flowers that appear to grow out of a channel running down its middle. Created by New York–based artist Lee Mingwei, the interactive installation also includes single blossoms arranged around the channel, which visitors are invited to take when they leave the Museum, on the condition that they make a detour on the way to their next destination and give the flower to a stranger as a gift.' - excerpted from the website of Brooklyn Museum.

An extended interview with Lee Mingwei by curator Eugenie Tsai discusses the creative process of The Moving Garden and five other participatory works by the artist, and Lee also shares his experiences of exhibiting the works in various venues around the world.

A list of further reading materials is included.
