The summer of 2012, Linklater plants 12 blueberry bushes purchased from home depot on the north eastern section of the lawn outside of The Hessel Museum and the Centre for Curatorial Studies at Bard College. This project was initiated by Linklater's analysis of the Cree language and its characteristic of animate/inanimate language structure rather than placing an emphasis on male/female gendering of objects, people, places and things. The blueberries in this case become animate agents, embodying a relationship between land and person, perhaps suggesting an equality.
