   one of the many possible points of view:

   together with the imagination for a new type of garden, we need a new
   conception of gardner:

     âit is hard to imagine which aspect these gardens will assume, in
     which existence is expected to assume no form. From my point of
     view, gardens of this kind should not be judged on account of their
     form, but, rather, on the basis of their capacity to generate and
     translate a certain joy of existence.â

     50s-early 60s, then again in the late 80s-90s. However, the logic of
     exchange soon comes to bear, foreclosing those possibilities in
     favor of reconstituted mechanisms of profit and control, thus
     creating a kind of treadmill effect. Just when you think you are
     buiilding a new society, then you are not anymore.
