Cecilia talks about her design for the DC Urban Forest Project, a global public arts and environmental initiative, planted 100 street banners designed by local designers and students in the downtown Washington DC in May 2011. Each banner used the form of, or metaphor for, a tree to make powerful visual statements about the environment.
