Presented as an alternative survey of some of the curious aspects of New York’s iconic High Line, this Field Guide by American artist Mark Dion provides an account of the wildlife, plants, and insects that inhabit the space, as well as essays considering the social context and history of the site. Full of peculiar observations, rumours, speculations, and mostly true facts, the Field Guide encourages viewers to question popular ideologies that define today’s “official” history of the elevated park. It includes “thoughts, musings and histories,” such as a timeline of events on the High Line, a “concise” guide to the wildlife, and illustrated guide to the plants of the area, Facts, Myths, & Rumors and even a Lost & Found section.
