"Since I moved from Bangkok to the Bronx in 1973, the New York Botanical Garden has been a place where I can rejuvenate my spirit when I'm feeling homesick. During my high school years I often walked on Bedford Avenue to the Garden; I volunteered in the Herbarium when my sister was renovating the Enid Haupt greenhouse. It is my sanctuary when I am yearning for Thailand. In its tropical room, I imagine myself back home in my old backyard. Looking at flowers and fruits I can recall their Thai names. This project is my homage to the Botanical Garden."-- Skowmon Hastanan. Source: cuny.edu.
