John Carey of Floating Island

I would like to proudly welcome our new artist John Carey of Floating Island. Floating Island is based off of…you guessed it, our very own floating island that is Alameda! If you haven’t seen them already at Modern Mouse, John creates these wonderful plant arrangements by combining air plants and locally-found materials. For those of you interested in making the world a more green and re-purposeful place, read on to learn about Floating Island.
