Autumn has set in. The days are getting Shorter. Different flowers has come and gone over the past few months on Homma Meridian which is still lingering despite of a few frosty nights.
According to Emily Artinian, the Director of Street Road Artists Space, Homma Meridian is now becoming a desirable property for some local population in Western Chester County, Pennsylvania, USA. No, not for the groundhogs, but the bunnies are living on a rather narrow and restrictive strips of this wild flower meadow as if, it is the most desirable street on Manhattan. Homma Meridian’s real estate value is on a increase, however it is also commented that with the end of summer approaching this property boom might also come to its end soon.
Homma Meridian has blossomed during the summer 2014 at Street Road Project, USA.
The weeds among the neatly mown lawn are standing tall and glorious. Each flowers is indicating its own Meridian without being conscious of its significance given by the artists and collaborators. It will wither and die after the beautiful summer, but as for today it is blooming.
For summer 2014, and in a collaboration with Adrian Barron and The Street Road Project Space, Homma Meridian is developing. The grass under the meridian has been cut away and indigenous plants are given free reign to grow.

The line is drawn with field marker paint for the American Football.
It is slowly fading away, leaving a faint mark behind.
One day people will not even remember it was here.
But this is where East met West.
June 2012, Homma Merdian has been drawn in USA, and placed as an outdoor land art installation. This ‘Homma Meridian’ line is stretching from north to south, across the entire property of Street Road Space, over the roof, the grass, the pavement and across the roof of the neighbouring doctor’s office . This work conceptually ‘re-sets’ Street Road’s longitude, and that of Cochranville, PA, to 0º0’0″ – the usual setting for Greenwich, England / Greenwich Mean Time.
Collaborating with local staff team, this Homma Meridian challenges the idea of peripheral and margins in relation to the idea of centrality.
