Mara Adamitz Scrupe, an environmental artist, has extended her exploration of illuminated sculpture she has created unique solar-powered work in Lithuania. Artist says, she hopes her garden-based installation Suspicious Science will inspire site visitors to extend their awareness, concern and activism on behalf of this planet.

Grotesquely large resin vegetables and squash illuminate at dusk. Suspicious Science addresses interrelated environmental issues: many communities suffer the effects of ozone depletion and related fossil fuel pollution, but must also consume foods, which have been grown in contaminated soil. The gorgeous but mutant vegetables in the Suspicious Science garden are an engaging but scary evocation of the possible outcome of nuclear pollution. The installation's solar-powered illumination softens this effect while suggesting energy alternatives that stabilizes the natural systems.
