Green withis a horticultural installation concerned with the human emotions of envy and desire. This theme is explored through colour, form and plant history.

The structure suggests a cage; perhaps the prison that the deeply envious individual who desires what another owns will inevitably find themselves trapped within, should they not conquer their weaknesses. The three Perspex cylinders at the centre of the structure hint that the orchids they contain are being kept safely out of reach. Like the orchids, the tulips and ferns have, over time, been the subject of desire and envy.
