Palm Tree Garden

Palm Tree Garden

PKD’s palm tree garden, which overlays the occluded black iron prison, is surely a metaphor that has its ‘roots’ in the ecological mimicry of the Californian landscape:

Although they conjure the image of Los Angeles as desert oasis, L.A.’s palm trees owe their iconic status more to Southern California’s turn-of-the-century cultural aspirations and engineering feats than to the region’s natural ecology.
