White Man's Foot / Ruderal

By
stencil / spray on paper
2015

When the Europeans got to America, they inadvertently brought with them seeds of the plant Plantago major, that started to grow wherever they passed. For that reason, the Amerindians named the plant "White Man's Foot". It illustrates the "Ruderal" concept, plants that follow humankind's steps, growing wherever men destabilizes and changes its original environment. Its etymology derives from the latin "rudus", which means "rubble", meaning that those are plants that grow in the debris that we create, in our ruins, claiming the environment for nature once again.
